Munich Remembered

Logo featuring a clock and the words 'Munich' and '6th Feb 1958'

On 6 February 1958, a charter plane carrying 44 people crashed after refuelling at Munich Airport.

The accident claimed 23 lives, among them eight Manchester United players and three club officials.

We hope these pages are a fitting tribute to the young United side many believe would have gone on to dominate European football - the Busby Babes.

We will never forget.
