Top 10 Famous People Who Died In An Airplane Crash
Though travel by air remains, statistically, the safest mode of transportation, that's not to say it hasn't proven to be a deadly form of travel from time to time. Normally we just note such tragedies and move on but, when the victim is a well-known politician, entertainer, or sports figure, we tend to take notice, thereby bestowing upon the victim a special aura reserved for only a few.

No Busby Babes?
I saw a show that said Carol Lumbar’s plane wasn’t just a regular pilot
error. You left out that the plane was taken over by the military and
everyone on board was told to get off. Because of who she was when she
asked to stay they agreed. The military pilot who came on board didn’t
reset the flight settings or something like that and that’s what caused the
plane to crash
otis redding & aaliyah
How about doing the Top Ten Famous People who lived to 100?
How about the top 10 oldest people in modern history?
That’s good too.
Aaliyah, Jenni Rivera, Ricky Nelson?? 😐
What about Roberto Clemente? Outstanding human being, not just a baseball
One thing I learned was more pilots need to be instrument rated
John Denver died on Oct. 12, 1997
What about Ricky Nelson
Patsy cline had an amazing voice, and very good songs, still listen to
No Aaliyah, no jenni rivera. This list a lil suspect.
Joseph Kennedy died flying over Suffolk. He was flying a Liberator packed
with explosives, which was to be flown into German submarine pens by remote
control.. Unfortunately his aircraft exploded before he and his co-pilot
No Aaliyah? lame
Hispanic’s an ethnicity, not a race, Hispanic is also European in origin,

+Little Richard Good question, since on most forms I fill out have seperate
sections for white Hispanic/non-Hispanic, I mean Hispanics are European in
+CoolPoppa Bell damn smh pple are pretty it aint about black or white
because we are all human
What about Amelia Earhart
+Rafael Bueno No proof that she died in an airplane crash!!!!!!!!!
Otis Redding, Jim Croce, Stevie Ray Vaugh, Lynyrd Skynyrd , Randy Rhoads,
Bill Graham, Aaliyah, Chuck Mangione’s Gerry Niewood. Someone named Knute
whatever, made this list, but none of the above legendary superstars did.
Pitiful. I mean, seriously, you are talking about the top ten plane crashes
that killed celebrities, and Otis Redding and Jim Croce are left out? Even
leaving out the others is a mystery, but Otis Redding and Jim Croce?
+Alessandro Gambino Do you have any reason to hate her?
+Roberta Louise Enyioko her plane crash landed in the ocean after running
out of fuel, that constitutes dying in a plane crash, especially in the
manner she did. It is right up there with Roberto Clemente who disappeared.
+Gregor Greg this is not a video about famous MUSICIANS that died in plane
crashes, but famous PEOPLE.
