The plane carrying Latin singer Jenni Rivera was revealed to have malfunctioned in 2005 as it is now believed that the Rivera and six others died when the plane crashed on Sunday.
Seven years ago, a fuel system malfunction caused one of the plane’s wings to weigh more than another while it was attempting to take off from an Amarillo airstrip. No one was injured in the 2005 incident.
The cause of Sunday’s crash remains unknown, but investigators now believe that all of the passengers and crew died on board, with Rivera’s presence confirmed by the discovery of her half-melted driver’s license.
The 43-year-old mother of five is already being mourned by her family in Lakewood, California, and her millions of fans.
River was revered for her soulful voice and her openness about her personal struggles.
