Yes, it did. Did you ever see the movie Alive? They crashed into the mountains, and they had to eat those who had died in the crash to stay alive. Two guys ended up treking out of the wreckage after a few days of waiting for help. They eventually found a village and were able to save something like 8 people, I think.

If you haven't seen that movie, it's a must-see if you like human endurance stories.

Did something similar happen to Okla St basketball team a few years back, I think?

Wow - I remembered that, too, and did a quick Google search:

1949 AC Torino
1958 Manchester United
1969 the Bolivian team
1993 the team of Zambia

All plane crashes. Soccer seems to be a dangerous sport. 8-o

Interesting site by the way!

I graduated from Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, which is in Central California. In 1960 the Cal Poly football team was killed flying back from a game with Bowling Green. :,-(
