Description

This is is the definitive, firsthand account of the crash that killed eight members of one of the greatest Manchester United teams in history. On February 6, 1958, a plane carrying the so-called Busby Babes--named for manager Matt Busby--attempted to take off from a slush-covered runway in Munich following a European Cup match; the plane careened off the runway, and crashed into a nearby house, killing 23 passengers. Frank Taylor recalls the events leading up to the disaster, the moment of the crash, and its appalling aftermath. Features recollections from players who survived--including Duncan Edwards who died 15 days after the crash--and exclusive photographs from the scene.
