Funnily enough, I discussed the Munich Air Disaster with Bill Griggs, during my visit with him.
They were under pressure to get home (Manchester United) because they had been warned that if they got home late for their next game, they would be punished. Probably points deduction.
The airport also put pressure on Captain Thain to get gos plane going. They radioed him and said he had a deadline or his windo would be 'void'.
There was no ice on the wings, as the airport claimed, and this was dismissed by rescuers who climbed on the plane, but the plane was slowed by slush on the runway, at a point where it wasnt safe to abort. (V1)

2 terrible tragedies, a year apart. Crazy.
