R&B star Aaliyah died on August 25, 2001, when she was just 22 years old. The singer died in a plane crash that also claimed the lives of eight others, including the plane’s pilot and members of the star’s entourage. Aaliyah was travelling from The Bahamas to Florida when the crash occurred. Tragically, the singer was scheduled to fly out the following day, but having finished up filming of her music video, the star was eager to return to the United States. The plane was only 60 metres from the runway when it exploded, leaving devastation in its wake.
