"....high-profile performers like Patsy Cline, Richie Valens, Buddy Holly and Jiles Richardson (the "Big Bopper"), Jim Croce, Ricky Nelson, Aaliyah, Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines, Audie Murphy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jenni Rivera, Soundarya, and most of Reba McEntire's band all died in non-scheduled aircraft crashes. Whole sports teams and NASCAR crews have been decimated in such events, as well as individual standouts like Roberto Clemente. Hale Boggs, Nick Begich, Mickey Leland, and Ted Stevens -- all members of Congress -- died under similar circumstances, as did sitting Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown (in a dedicated VIP airlift aircraft)." https://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2016/04/15/what-caused-lynyrd-skynyrds-plane-crash/#40ab70f39a8a

Fuel leak, maybe? Hard to tell until the investigation is completed and released. Could be that they planned a destination plus 45 minutes and an alternate 30 minutes away, then failed to recognize stronger-than-anticipated headwinds. Hard to say.
