Colin McRaes helicopter crashed today killing all 4 people



Quote:THE former rally driving champion Colin McRae was killed and his five year-old son feared dead in a helicopter crash yesterday afternoon. The aircraft came down in Jerviswood, Lanarkshire, half a mile from the family's home and burst into flames just after 4pm.

Jean-Eric Freudiger, McRae's agent, said the 39-year-old driver had been piloting the helicopter himself. Also on board were believed to be his son Johnny, another adult and another child. Police said there were no survivors.

The most spectacular rally driver I can remember. I got speechless this morning when I heard the news.

I remember, back in the late 90's, he crashed and damaged the ford focus rear suspension, he fixed it with a ROCK, what a tool!

He drifted. Rip.
