This is bad... There is no acceptable reason for this. Of course, even with the bad maintenance history does not mean that is why the plane crash... Trying to assume that too early in the game only hampers the investigation... Right now, no one really knows... It could be as simple as CFIT.... By looking at the article there is not much info. Info I would like to see, is the wreckage in a tight area, or spread over a long distance. If a long distance, it broke up before landing, if it is in a tight area the it probably crashed in tact.

If we want to speculate, it could be as simple as the singer wanted to see what it was like to fly the plane, and the crew not able to recover it. We all know how stupid people can be.

Note to zowen11 - The title you post here makes it look conclusive, the title of the real article is much difference. The owner was convicted (Past Tense) meaning it was in the past, and all could have been repaired/fixed long prior to this flight.
