2 December 2005 –
It is now three decades since 1962 and 1968 world champion Graham Hill's tragic plane crash. As a team owner, returning from a test in France on 29 November 1975 with his promising young driver on board, he and Tony Brise - and five other team members - died when the private plane crashed in fog on a golf course.
"His plane caught the top of trees and ploughed into another tree and caught fire," photographer Rob Brewster - one of the first on the scene in England - told the 'This is Hertfordshire' publication this week. Hill, 46, was the plane's pilot.
He is remembered as a great British driver and a larger-than-life character, full of jokes and the soul of any party.
