I find it plausible that the kind-hearted, Buddy, even if he really didn't intend to give Dion a seat, could have made an offer to Dion in a way that Dion understood that the plane wasn't for him but that he had the option of taking a seat if he really wanted(a "token" offer, if you will). This may well have happened much earlier in the day than the Allsup/Valens coin flip. It could well have been a "courtesy" Buddy gave to Dion. And although Dion understood that he wasn't getting a seat he felt as though the offer(even as a "token")was made and left him with the memory of what could have been. Also, knowing that coin flips were happening that day, I also imagine it's plausible that some type of "ceremonial" flip happened involving Dion as well.

I'm not saying that's what happened-I wasn't there-I'm just saying its plausible. And if it did happen that way-It doesn't change a thing-It doesn't make Tommy's story invalid or Waylons. Their stories don't have to be mutually exclusive--It all could have happened. I'm of the opinion that we should respect the memories of those who were involved-without condemning one version and endorsing another. As, I'm sure the tragedy has/will haunt them forever.
