MUNICH REMEMBERED

6th February 1958

A 50th Anniversary Tribute

Just after 3 o’clock on a chill afternoon in Munich 50 years ago on Wednesday, the plane carrying a victorious Manchester United team back from Belgrade crashed on a snow-covered runway while making a third attempt to take off after a refuelling stop. It claimed the lives of 23 people, including eight players.
