On 4 May 1949, what was arguably the best team on the planet was wiped out in football's first aviation disaster. The plane carrying 'Il Grande Torino' - the great Torino FC side which had won five successive Italian championships - plowed into the Basilica di Superga that overlooks Turin, killing all 31 passengers and crew.

For the 70th anniversary of the Superga air disaster, Outside Write visits Turin and also talks to Dominic Bliss, biographer of that Torino FC side's manager, Ernö Erbstein, and Robert Gillman, who blogs about Torino FC in English.
