Movie (1987)

Lou Diamond Phillips (Ritchie Valens)
Esai Morales (Roberto "Bob" Morales (Ritchie's half-brother))
Rosanna DeSoto (Connie Valenzuela (Ritchie's mother))
Elizabeth Peña (Rosie Morales)

R/C Model

Piper PA-31 Navajo or Cessna 401 or Beechcraft Twin Bonanza. Only this last one was already on the production line in 1959 but it's just a model and the team was perhaps not too concerned with historical precision.
