Twenty-Four hours later, a devastated Ozzy Osbourne would provide the following statement to state police. “At approximately 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 19, 1982, I was awoken from my sleep by a loud explosion. I immediately thought that we’d hit a vehicle on the road. I got out of the bed, screaming to my fiancée, Sharon, ‘Get off the bus.’ After departing, I saw that a plane had crashed.
What started out as an early morning joyride on a friend’s plane had quickly turned deadly. Three people would die in the fiery plane crash including lead guitarist, Randy Rhoads, as well as Rachel Youngblood, and Andrew Aycock, the band’s bus driver.
