The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will not reopen an investigation into a historic Iowa plane crash.

A pilot from New England wanted the NTSB to take another look at the crash that killed rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, J.P.  “The Big Bopper” Richardson and Ritchie Valens.

The plane crash landed in Clear Lake back in 1959.

The pilot who wants the investigation to be reopened claims the pilot of the plane that crashed has been unfairly blamed, saying snow and other factors also played a role.

The NTSB said the evidence submitted by the pilot is not sufficient enough to reopen the case.
