Re: Should we re-open the investigation into Jim's plane crash?
It seems very clear to me that an inexperienced pilot flying an aircraft in dangerous weather conditions would most likely be the cause of the crash, unless there are any mysterious circumstances involved that would cause one to believe there were any other contributing factors. From what I've read of the Buddy Holly crash, the other theories as to what might have caused this tragedy are not strong enough, in my opinion, to support a re-investigation into the cause of the accident. There are, however, many unanswered questions as to the true cause of Jim and Dean's plane crash, and why searchers were directed AWAY from where the plane had gone down. None of the pieces here seem to fit together, and if ever there was reason to re-open an investigation, this is it! Add to this the fate of that poor woman who worked at the airport that was apparently run off the road and killed, and you have a REAL mystery that raises many unanswered questions!
