He died in an experimental plane he was flying that crashed into the ocean in Calif. Hi songs were awesome.
John Denver...he would just get into an airplane and fly up into the sky! That's how he rolled.
My best friend flew out of the same airport. He showed me the exact model of place that he died in. He ran out of fuel and the auxiliary fuel selector switch, which would have prevented the crash, was located behind the right shoulder in virtually impossible location to reach comfortably.
Sad, he was a gifted singer and nice guy.
