Munich disaster where 7 Manchester United died, was a chapter of darkest moment in the club history. Busby babes as they were called died in plane accident alongside other 15 passengers. It occurred on 6 February 1958 when British European Airways Flight 609 crashed on its third attempt to take off from a slush-covered runway at Munich-Riem Airport, West Germany. The plane had landed in Munich for refueling, the crew tried to took off twice but failed due to engine problems, it started to snow so it looked like the flight will be delayed till the next day but they insisted so they can keep on schedule. On third attempt was made but the runway was full of snow which slowed the plane to reach high speed to take off. Making the plane to slid off the runway and crushing through surrounding fences and nearby houses. May their soul continue resting.
