Aaliyah was sweet, but street.On August 25, 2001, at 6:45 pm (EST), Aaliyah and various members of the record company boarded a twin engine Cessna 402B (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 Rock the Boat.They had a flight scheduled the following day, but with filming finishing early, Aaliyah and her entourage were eager to return to the United States. They made the decision to leave immediately. Against the advice of baggage handlers and the pilot, all the equipment from the shoot was loaded on to the plane. The group was unaware that the plane was unable to hold all the equipment of the Cessna 404 they had initially flown in by. Therefore, the aircraft exceeded the standard weight and balance tolerance limit provided by Cessna.The plane crashed shortly after takeoff, about 200 feet (60 m) from the runway.Aaliyah, 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 killed
According to findings from an inquest, conducted by the coroner's office in The Bahamas, Aaliyah suffered from "severe burns and a blow to the head", in addition to severe shock and a weak heart. The coroner theorized that, even if Aaliyah had survived the crash, her recovery would have been virtually impossible given the severity of her injuries.The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report stated that "the airplane was seen lifting off the runway, and then nose down, impacting in a marsh on the south side of the departure end of runway 27." It also indicated that the pilot was not approved to pilot the plane he was attempting to fly. Morales falsely obtained his Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) license by showing hundreds of hours never flown, and he may also have falsified how many hours he had flown in order to get a job with his employer, Blackhawk International Airways. Additionally, an autopsy performed on Morales revealed traces of cocaine and alcohol in his system. Further investigations determined the plane was over its total gross weight by 700 pounds and was loaded with one more passenger than it was allowed to carry. John Frank of the Cessna Pilots Association stated that the plane was "definitely overloaded".The NTSB reported that the total gross weight of the plane was "substantially exceeded", which caused the center of gravity to be pushed too far aft.

This is real sad thoa, she was only 22 years old. The thing is we never get used 2 death , we see it happening all the time to there people but then its always a shock especially when we knew the person and can't believe that they just happened 2 cease 2 exist. I am only 20 and ime still tryna grasp onto n undastand the nature of death itself.

Aaliyah died in a plane crash in the Bahamas. She died with the other people onboard. I guess it was all their turn. Sadly, everyone must go someday. It's a fact of life. Her day just happened to that day.

I heard she wasn't burned at all, the pic y'all see with her arms and legs gone is not her... she had legs and arms, if you look at her death pic, she broke her neck and had a heart attack.

Aaliyah died on Saturday August 25, 2001 in a plane crash after shooting her video "Rock Da Boat".  I loved all her songs, especially her earlier songs.  She was also an awesome actress.  She played in Romeo Must Die & another movie I forgot the name of.  She will be greatly missed, but not forgotten

Aaliyah was an inspiration to me I was 2 years of age when she past away. When I listen to her music I sometimes cry because when I was little I always thought Aaliyah was my aunt because my aunty looked just like her and she had a poster of her.She died in the year of 2001 in a plane crash after singing and recording ROCK THE BOAT! I like this song.
