Regarding the plane having been for the headliners of that show, no one has pointed out that Dion was not yet a headliner in 1959--at that time, he was merely the lead singer of a group, Dion & The Belmonts. He did not become a headliner until he left that group, went solo, and racked up two major hits by the end of 1961, thus becoming Dion-the-headliner at that time, almost three years after the plane business. In 1959, Dion calling himself a "headliner" worthy of a seat on that plane would be just as ridiculous as the lead singer of The Crests, The Monotones, or The Bobbettes claiming headliner status and plopping into the plane to leave their groupmates to freeze on the bus. Especially with Dion having gone on about group loyalty, etc. so often in the past.
