Manchester United’s Munich tribute on 6 Feb 2008

Manchester United have announced plans to mark the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster on 6 February 2008.

The highlights:

* United players to wear a retro 1950s-style kit against Manchester City on 10 February
* Permanent, free exhibition telling the story of the Busby Babes
* South Stand tunnel to be renamed the Munich Tunnel
* Memorial service involving survivors, relatives of those who died, guests and fans
* MUTV to broadcast free-to-air on 6 February

You can get the full details and the writeup on the official site (you’d think they’d use search friendly URLs by now).

Question of the day – anyone here old enough to remember the event? Barring that, anyone here born before the Munich air disaster?
