Wow, this is a big loss for Hollywood.

Film composer James Horner, known for his heart-tugging scores for Field of Dreams, Braveheart and Titanic, died Monday in a plane crash near Santa Barbara.

His death was confirmed by Sylvia Patrycja, his assistant:

“We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent,” Patrycja wrote on Facebook on Monday. “He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road.”

Horner was piloting the small aircraft when it crashed into a remote area about 60 miles north of Santa Barbara, officials said. He was 61.

He is probably best known for his work on the 1997 best picture winner Titanic, where his score sold a whopping 27 million copies worldwide. His close partnership with James Cameron also netted him Oscar noms for original score for the blockbusters Aliens (1986) and Avatar (2009). The pair reportedly were also at work on Avatar sequels.

This is really sad.  Keep the Horner family in your thoughts today…
