Wife and I have been discussing the number of "celebrities" that have been killed in Aviation accidents.
The first one I think of in my limited memory of history is Knute Rockne.
And the list goes on from there.
Buddy Holly, Richie Valenzuela, J.P. Richardson.
Stevie Ray Vaughn.
The above list may not be in proper "timeline" order. But most of 'em were due to stupid Pilot error.
Can you think of, and enumerate, others?
