The photos are from the plane wreck in Clear Lake on Feb. 3, 1959, the day rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson, and their pilot, Roger Peterson, died. Since they are in color, they are especially rare. Few others, if any, exist.

Brian Hensley also was worried after he heard about the fire. He had a 12-gauge shotgun at the shop, which he'd purchased two years earlier as a Christmas gift to himself.
