    James Horner was an honorary member of the Bremont Horsemen Air Demonstration Team (the 4th. Horseman) and he wrote the music score for "The Horseman" played during their P-51 Mustang performances.

    In this 2010 video he talks about scoring the music and how he was learning to fly the P-51 and had hoped to be able to fly it to his own music score some day (don't know if he realized his dream).

    He was obviously an incredibly talented person and his death is a great loss.

    "Horner won two Oscars for his work on the 1997 film Titanic. He also worked on the score for Braveheart, Apollo 13, Alien and A Beautiful Mind. He also earned an Oscar nomination for his original song, “Somewhere Out There,” from An American Tail".

    Oh wow, I didn't know he was also behind 'somewhere out there'. That's a beautiful song.
