Homage to the greatness of the MUTD

Today, 6th of February we mark 56 years since the Munich Air Disaster. On this day in 1958, Manchester United suffered their greatest tragedy, when the plane taking the team home from a European Cup match crashed in Munich.

The ‘Busby Babes’ played their final game a day before by defeating Red Star Belgrade 5-4 on aggregate, to reach the last four.

Among the 23 who passed away, 8 were United players: Roger Byrne, Tommy Taylor, David Pegg,Eddie Colman, Mark Jones, Billy Whelan, Geoff Bent and Duncan Edwards, who died later in a German hospital.

As a part of an homage to Manchester United and remembrance to Munich disaster, I look back at some of the photos I have taken of MUTD and Old Trafford, with Olympus OM 10, SLR and Lomo LC-A. Enjoy the gallery.
