    Oh no, BBC News 24 have just reported that there were four people onboard, Colin is believed to be one of them, there are no survivors. No formal ID's will be made until tomorrow.

    Absolutely awful. If true, himself and his son amongst the flight crew. sad sad news. I worked on some websites promoting video games brought out in his honour. A fear I hold of anyone flying a light aircraft - my uncle has a helicopter, and it only amplifies my fears of such accidents and the reality of what can happen. Thoughts go out.

    Saw it on Sky News this morning - shocking news and although they are reporting "Believed to be Colin" I fear that will be a confirmation soon... My heart goes out to his family....

    I can't believe David Richards was in one today too - that's unbelievable! Thankfully he survived.

    Total shock. I dont know about everyone else but you sometimes look at Celebs & Sports stars as being invincible to an extent, then things like this happen, total reality check.

    Jesus, first Richard Burns, now Colin too. Neither in the manner they would've wanted to go.

    God bless your family Colin and thank you for many proud moments.

    I can't believe this has happened. Absolutely gutted. I shudder to think what must have gone through his mind in the seconds before the crash. This is so,so bad. Really upset about this.

    Absolutely gutted...... Ranks alongside losing other greats such as Senna and Richard Burns.

    I was only looking through my photo's of the 1995 World Championship finale the other day. I was very proud to be there at Chester and to have patted Colin on the back as he went to collect the trophy.

    My sincere condolences to his family, a great man who will be sorely missed by the world of motorsport.
