Glen Miller.

And though not plane crashes, the Simpsons had a sick joke tonight on a rerun. Marge is in first class having a pedicure while Homer is getting a massage and just decided to have both "a Steak and two Steaks" and Marge says: "This is so luxurious. I feel like Princess Di and Princess Grace smashed together."

That would be a portion of the Oklahoma State Men's Basketball team. Most of Marshall University's (West Virginia) Football team perished in a plane crash in the mid 80's I believe. A famous US Senator was killed on KAL 007. This is a very morbid subject so I am going to stop thinking about it now...

Stevie Ray Vaughn, the blues guitarist. It was 1990 and himself, Eric Clapton, Reba McIntire, BB King, and a slew of other great bluesmen were doing a gig, several of whom had helicopters to get them out after the show. Stevie had a pressing gig or something, and Clapton offered to switch helo's with him. Claptons helo, with SRV on it, crashed.

Randy Rhoades, former Ozzy guitarist, was killed when Ozzies plane's pilot was doing low buzzes of the tour bus and crashed into it or the house near it, can't recall.
