PLANE CRASH KILLS ACTOR AND FOLKSINGER.
Actor PHILLIP G. BENT and folksinger PETER SACHSE, both 26, were killed Tuesday (Jul;y 12, 1966) when their converted World War II training plane crashed 150 feet off-shore while making a series of low passes over Windansea Beach near La Jolla.

SALLI SACHSE is now in Hong Kong filming “The Million Eyes of Su-Muru.”
“It looked like he was zooming down to make a loop,” said one witness. “I remember saying, ‘He does not have enough room.’ Then he crashed.”
