Colin McRae feared dead

With the news that Colin McRae's helicopter has crashed and he is feared dead, it seems, yet again, to highlight what a dangerous thing a helicopter is. The number of helicopter deaths seems to be rising, at least my anecdotal noting of reports of helicopter crashes leads me to that conclusion.

Whatever the case, this death, and those of his friends is a great shame. Colin McRae was a real motorsport legend, a genuinely exceptional talent.

Nich-
Anecdote does not equal data.

You should know better. Here's a thought - more helicopter crashes due to more flights? That would be expected...

A sad loss to the world of motorsport however.

(and why is part of this comment box in German?)

I heard a rumour from one of the paramedics at the scene attending the injured Colin McRae that he rallied and then died...

I have no idea about the German. For some reason blogger has started displaying elements to me in german for the last two days. Any help and guidance on this is appreciated. Anyone ?

Nich: I think it has something to do with Maggie Thatcher visiting Number 10 the Daily Mail has a very good photo of her doing a Nazi salute...
