Suit blames Boeing for San Francisco airport crash

ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — Three San Francisco Bay Area families are suing Boeing over the deadly crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214.

The San Jose Mercury News says the suits filed Thursday allege that the maker of the Boeing 777 provided inadequate training to pilots in South Korea.

However, it doesn’t make clear whether Boeing trained the pilots of Flight 214, which crashed last month while landing at San Francisco International Airport, killing three teenagers.

A crash survivor is among those suing.

The families also claim that Boeing should have added a “low airspeed” voice warning for pilots to the 777 following a similar crash of a Boeing 737 in Amsterdam four years ago.

The Mercury News says Boeing couldn’t be reached for comment.
