Rocky Marciano Plane Crash This is a photo of the wreckage of the small private plane in which former world heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano (and two others) perished on August 30, 1969. The plane crashed in Newton, Iowa. It was taking Marciano to a birthday party planned in his honor. He died a day short of his 46th birthday.
