No. The plane crash was in 1958, and Matt Busby was still Manchester United manager when they won the European Cup in 1968. However, he was seriously injured. He had to go on crutches and was told by the doctors that he may nver walk again, but persevered and eventually did go on to walk
Eight players - Roger Byrne, Eddie Colman, Mark Jones, Duncan Edwards, Billy Whelan, Tommy Taylor, David Pegg and Geoff Bent - killed in the 1958 plane crash were within the group collectively known as the Busby Babes, a term coined by Frank Nicklin, who was a reporter with the Manchester Evening News.
Sadly, the Yankees had two players that died in a plane crash. Thurman Munson (1979) and Cory Lidle (2006).
In 1958 there was the Munich air disaster, when 20 people died in a crash of a plane that had the Manchester United Football team on it. In 1972 athletes were kidnapped at the Munich Olympics. 11 of them were killed.
