Classic Car Comment  It‘s an accepted fact that people we have known for a long time pass away, either through old age or because of illness. That Bob Rutherford should depart this world falling off a cliff, although tragic, and I‘m not being flippant here, is perhaps unsurprising. Mr. Rutherford never followed convention. Wherever you are Bob, at some point we‘ll look back on this sad episode together and have a laugh. Until then, rest in peace.

Take a look at our snapshot of Shuttleworth's Flying Festival of Britain held at Old Warden on Sunday 6 June.
