Roy Halladay's wife Brandy said she fought hard to keep her husband from buying the plane in which he died.

"I didn't grow up with airplanes," Brandy Halladay said in a now haunting YouTube video posted by ICON Aircraft last month, "or a comfort level like he did in small airplanes."

Halladay, 40, was killed when the ICON A5 he was piloting crashed in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday.

"She fought me the whole way," Halladay said standing next to his wife in front of the airplane in the promotional video. The video has since been removed.
