1. Rivera died in an old Learjet 25 with a 79 year old captain.

I have a lot of time piloting a Learjet 25C. It is a fine airplane, but very unforgiving. It is particularly unforgiving of excursions beyond Vmo/Mmo (max airframe speed limits in the air). This crash has some characteristics of a classic Learjet Mach-tuck episode.

2. Hmmmmm......

Who knows what caused the crash, but good work pointing out the small detail in the company's history.
