Reba McEntire is paying tribute to the bandmates she tragically lost in a 1991 plane crash.
"Today is the 25th anniversary of the airplane crash. I went back to San Diego [in] November of last year and took a helicopter up to the crash site," the 60-year-old singer captioned a somber black and white Instagram photo of herself riding on a plane.
"I feel in my heart that they know we still miss them so much. My love and prayers to all the families and friends," Reba continued in the picture's caption, written on Wednesday, March 16.
Seven of Reba's bandmates, her tour manager, Jim Hammon, and two airplane crew members were previously killed in the March 1991 crash, which occurred after Reba performed in a San Diego concert.

After playing a 75-minute set, the band boarded a private jet, but tragedy struck just two minutes into the flight when the plane clipped a rock near the peak of Otay Mountain. The plane then crashed into the side of the mountain and exploded on impact. All 10 people onboard the flight were killed.
Reba was not on the plane because her now-ex-husband, Narvel Blackstock, convinced her to spend another night in San Diego to recover from a bout of bronchitis.
