    Composer of Titanic and others dead?

    Title should read "Composer of Titanic and other films, dead?" Not other people.

    Plane registered to Oscar-winning composer crashes in California - Chicago Tribune

    A single-engine plane registered to Oscar-winning "Titanic" composer James Horner crashed Monday in Southern California, but the identity of the one person who died has not been released.

    The crash happened at about 9:30
    His scores for "Alien," ''Apollo 13," ''Field of Dreams," ''Braveheart," ''A Beautiful Mind," ''House of Sand and Fog" and "Avatar" also earned Oscar nods, as did his original song, "Somewhere Out There," from "An American Tail."
    Some pretty big films in that list not including probably scores of others I have never heard of.

    James Horner, Film Composer for Dies in Plane Crash

    I have been in a couple small planes. There is just no margin for error in those things. A lot of times, no plan B if something bad goes wrong. You're just fuckin dead.

    Eh, there's plenty of margin for error. The fact is that flying is not driving a car and many pilots just get complacent. 90%+ of crashes (even airliners) are pilots not paying attention or ignoring the most basic of fight training. Maybe we'll find out- but even something dumb like forgetting to switch fuel tanks can be deadly when your engine quits and you are spending precious time attempting to diagnose an engine failure (mags, carb freezing, etc) when you just ran out of gas in one tank.

    That one Airbus crash where their pitot tube froze shut and instead of checking gauges to confirm loss of pressure they listen to alarms saying something that makes no logical sense, pull up and stall out. Just basic stuff.

    James Horner did Aliens, not Alien.
    RIP anyway
    A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.

    Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
