British Columbia Airplane Crash

Two people were killed when a charter twin-engine turbo-prop aircraft crashed in British Columbia in December 2005. A report released by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada concluded that a device that mixes fuel and air was prone to cracking and was partly responsible for the engine failure that caused the crash. The airline, Nav Air Charter Inc., sued the manufacturer of the aircraft, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and the manufacturer of the engine, Honeywell International, for their role in the crash. The lawsuit blames Honeywell for negligently failing to use reasonable care in the design, manufacture, distribution and after-market support of the allegedly defective device, called a combustion plenum.
