John Denver Dies in an Aircraft Accident

Known for such hits as "Rocky Mountain High" and "Take Me Home, Country Roads," country singer John Denver was no longer recording new material by the 1990’s, at least not with any large popularity. However, by this time he had become a movie star, political activist and an accomplished private pilot. On this day in 1997, Denver flew an aircraft that he wasn’t familiar with and apparently lost control of the aircraft leading to his fatal crash over Monterey Bay.
