The Beechcraft Bonanza crashed a few minutes after takeoff from
Mason City, Iowa at about 2am on 2/3/1959
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step.
I can't remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside,
The day the music died.
"American Pie" by Don McLean
