Boeing sued over 2013 Asiana Airlines crash

Jan. 18, 2014 at 4:55 PM

CHICAGO, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- A lawsuit filed by passengers on an Asiana Airlines flight that crashed at the San Francisco airport blames Boeing for defects in the plane.

About 100 of the 307 people onboard the plane during the crash landing last summer have joined the lawsuit, the Chicago Tribune reported. It was filed Friday in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago.

In their complaint, the plaintiffs charge Boeing knew the airspeed warning systems and auto-throttle controls on the 777 jet were not adequate and the pilots not properly trained.

Three people were killed when the plane, landing at San Francisco International Airport after a flight from Seoul, hit a seawall. Other lawsuits have already been filed.
