Manchester United Soccer Club

Date: 2/6/1958
Crash Site: Munich, Germany

After making a stop at the Munich-Riem Airport for refueling, the pilot of the British European Airways Flight 609 attempted three departures in snowy air conditions. On the third try, a build up of slush on the runway prevented the plane from reaching a steady velocity for takeoff and the plane crashed into a house. Eight members of the club died.
