AALIYAH DANA HAUGHTON (JANUARY 16, 1979 – AUGUST 25, 2011)

………………

Today marks the 10th anniversary of singer Aaliyah Dana Haughton’s tragic death.

Aaliyah and various members of the record company boarded a twin-engine Cessna 402B (registration N8097W) at Marsh Harbour, Abaco Islands, The Bahamas, to travel to the airport in Opa-locka, Florida, after they completed filming the music video for the single “Rock the Boat”.

The plane crashed shortly after takeoff, about 200 feet (60 m) from the runway. Aaliyah and the eight others on board, pilot Luis Morales III, hair stylist Eric Forman, Anthony Dodd, security guard Scott Gallin, video producer Douglas Kratz, stylist Christopher Maldonado, and Blackground Records employees Keith Wallace and Gina Smith, were all killed.

Rest In Peace.
