On this day, 30 years ago Graham Hill was so tragically killed. There is an interesting page on the BBC website looking back on that fateful day, including video of the news report:

Oops - well spotted. I've also just noticed that this should be in a thread posted by Barry Boor further down the page - not got my brain in gear this morning...

They say everyone can remember where they were when they heard that JFK was shot. You have to be old enough of course! I can remember having fallen asleep in front of the TV and waking up just as the news about the plane crash came on and hearing the headline and then having to wait until the end of the news to confirm I hadn't dreamt it. And only a couple of miles away from where I was living at the time.

Back at the International Trophy in '62 when Graham pulled out that last minute pass to beat Jim Clark he became my hero. Somehow, in my eyes, the fact that he could beat Clark made him better than Clark, well made sense to me.

Today would have been Graham's 84th birthday. Unbelievable!

BBC article is somewhat inaccurate. There is no mention of the Aussie who was on board.....
