I did have a lovebird fall from a flight and die (indoors), so it can 
indeed happen quickly. Mary Mushinsky, Wallingford

Then, it just fell from the sky, dead.  I don't know that I have heard of a bird falling from the air like that without being shot but it must happen on occasion.  He said that it took off and flew in a completely normal manner, not as if it was sick or injured.
