Patsy Cline Killed In Air Crash

uncredited writer, New Musical Express, 8 March 1963

A TRAGIC air accident again struck a cruel blow at the pop music world this week. Four years after Buddy Holly's death, country-and-western star Patsy Cline died when a light aircraft, piloted by her manager, Randy Hughes, crashed. With them were two other prominent singers, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins, as passengers. All were killed.
