Composer James Horner, known for his works in Titanic, Avatar, and Braveheart, was tragically killed in a plane crash outside of Santa Barbra, California while flying his Shorts S312 Tucano.  He was 61.  Mr. Horner was a friend of the aviation community. He composed a piece of music for the Horsemen Cometh, now the Bremont Horsemen aerobatic team, the Horsemen fly to Horner’s piece at airshows around the country.  His legacy will live on, rest in peace.
