While watching the vid that skatesindreams posted, I found another documentary, called "The Last Day" that focuses just on the plane crash and the circumstances surrounding it.

This one features interviews by one of Buddy's older brothers, the Peggy Sue, Waylon Jennings (who had traded that infamous quip with Buddy: "I hope your bus feezes"; "I hope your planes crashes!"), Tommy Allsup (who lost the coin toss with Ritchie Valens for the final seat on the plane), and Carl Bunch, who was Buddy's drummer on that tour, who missed the last concert because he was hospitalized with frostbitten feet after their bus's heater broke down. They also interview the manager and MC of the Surf Ballroom, as well as the owner of the plane - according to the voice-over, it was the first time he ever granted an interview in regards to the plane crash.
