Lots of outlets reporting a plane registered to James has crashed with no survivors and James was presumed on board.

This is sad news no matter the outcome, even more so if he was on board. We're losing scored music in films to flavor of the month groups and he's one of the last holdouts.

Most people think of Titanic, for me it's the Main Title to Battle Beyond the Stars. Awesome theme!!

I do hope he wasn't the pilot, and turns up OK.

For me, my favorite is Wrath of Khan. I know he "borrowed" from other composers, and recycled a number of musical ideas in his soundtracks, but I still enjoyed his work greatly, and hope to continue doing so.

Sorry to hear it, even though it isn't officially confirmed yet that it was him, I know it in my heart. RIP James Horner. Loved Battle beyond the Stars, STII TWOK, and Aliens!

So sad. Braveheart stands out as a highlight to me.

RIP. Some great film scores over the years.

Damn.
I know he had gotten into aviation again and had written music for flight teams.
A big part of the movie magic I grew up with.

This is such terrible news. What a great loss to music and film scores. He was in my top three composers. RIP mr Horner and thank you for sharing your gift with the rest if us.

Extremely sad to hear about his death..... he composed some of the greatest music in the film industry. Glory, The Rocketeer, Aliens, Apollo 13 and Titanic have been some of my favorite soundtracks. His talents will be greatly missed.
