Scottish tragedy

Rally ace McRae, young son feared dead in helicopter horror
World rally star Colin McRae and his young son were feared dead after his helicopter crashed and exploded near his Scottish home.

The 39-year-old driver was thought to be at the controls of the French-built Squirrel helicopter with his son Johnny, five, as a passenger when it crashed a mile from the family farm in Lanarkshire just after 4pm.

Strathclyde police confirmed that at least one person had died and it is believed that there were four passengers on board altogether.

You know where I'm going with this, don't you?

Two main problems:

1. Driving anything French-built
2. Driving anything called a Squirrel

It is a horrible tragedy, though, regardless. My deepest condolences to his young family and the families of the others in the craft along with him.
