Calif., Aug. 30.—(A5*—Death claimed
Cecil Allen early Friday as be fol
lowed eight other planes roaring
toward Cleveland and Near York in
the annual $133000 Bendlx trophy
race
Alien, 33 year old former trans
pacific filer was killed when his
Gcc Bee plane crashed a mile from
♦he terminal, apparently never hav
ing gained altitude after diving
down the fog bound runway.
Meanwhile, the eight other fliers,
Including such prominent aviation
figures as Amelia Earhart and Col.
Rrjfcoe Turner, sped eastward, un
aware of the tragedy behind them.
Allen’s speedy craft grounded in
a field Just off Linkers helm boule
vard In North Hollywood, plowing
a deep furrow in the ground before
it was demolished and its wreckage
scattered for 500 feet
The pilot obviously had no time
to save himhelf, so quickly did his
plane hit.
Allen first flew to fame when he
and Don Moyle attempted a non
stop flight acrais the Pacific in
1951. Battling storms and fuel
shortage, they took a month to fly
from Japan to Titcoma, Wash., after
be.ng forced (town on a bleak
Aleuthlan island and then flying
to the Siberian coast for paint thin
ner, which they used as fuel.
Friday’s flight was his first ex
pelienee in a transcontinental speed
dash.
His ship, the **Spii1t of Right,”
was sponsored by a religious group.
A crowd estimated at 10,000 per
sons saw the tab* off.
