But no one could have thought, not in nightmares, tragedies like this will end up their golden period. On the evening of May 4, 1949, they were returning to their country after playing friendly matches with SL Benfica from Lisbon.

But bad weather and misfortune did not let them return home. Due to heavy clouds and rain, even a distance of 100meters was barely visible for the pilot. Eventually, the plane hit the wall of the ancient fort Basilica of Superga, located in the hill of Turin. It killed 31 passengers on the plane, including the club’s players, officials, journalists, all.

With a layer of slush on the runway and hostile winds, and a slight error in the engine, and the airport authority suggested them for a night hold. But the main pilot refused to stay the night to keep his schedule on. He tried to take off for the third time after failing in his first two attempts.

In the third run, the plane came to the end of the runway and couldn’t take-off due to lack of speed. Then it hits the tree line and the left wing got broken and the back part got blown by fire. Manchester United players were there at the back, they thought it will be more secure for them. 21 people died on the spot and two others in the hospital. Among them, 8 players, the team coach, and 2 officials were killed. Surprisingly, the main pilot survived and was later brought to justice for his horrible mistake.
