Airplane NTSB considers reopening Buddy Holly crash probe

It was labeled "the day the music died," but speculation has lived on about the cause of the airplane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa, that killed rock 'n' roll legend Buddy Holly and three others in 1959.

The Civil Aeronautics Board ruled on Sept. 23, 1959, that the crash's cause was pilot error and deficiencies in the weather briefing to the pilot. But 56 years later, officials with the National Transportation Safety Board say its cold-case unit is considering reopening the investigation.

In the past couple of hours, the NTSB have sent a couple of tweets in regards to this story; they posted the Civil Aviation Board's report of the accident (PDF document) and clarified the conditions under which a decision to reconsider findings of a previously investigated accident would be based.
