  • Just saying!!

    I automatically became upset when I saw the title of this article. I can’t even read it. I just had to express that because I feel it’s incredibly depressing. Why bother? I need to go look at something happy now…..

  • Aaliyah Noelle

    aaliyahs death still terrifies me til this day. i was like 7 when she died. i remember crying so hard because she was my idol. her death is the reason im so scared of heights . no planes. no roller coasters. not even escalaters or elevaters. til this day..

    I loved me some JFK, Jr. but if I was his wife, I wouldn’t have gotten on that plane with him. I would have tried to change his mind as well. He shouldn’t have been flying anyway since he had sprained/broken his foot and it the weather was bad, too. I wish they all would have taken a regular plane on a Red-Eye express or they could have left a few days before so they wouldn’t be rushed to be at the wedding. That crash could have been avoided.

  • Jai Taormino

    What about Thurman Munson who played for the Yankees as a back catcher, he died in an airplane accident also!

  • Reese

    This article so is sad and what makes it even sadder is that a few of these crashes could have been avoided like Aaliyah’s. The pilot was high off coke and the plane was overloaded a very bad combination.

      And don’t forget her cheap az record company, first they over work the girl then they can’t even send a private jet for her! Her death still hurts and angers me because it shouldn’t have happened.
