USA: passengers sue Boeing after Denver crash

Four passengers on a Continental Airlines jet that veered off a Denver runway in December have filed suit against the jet’s maker. The lawsuits filed in federal court in Denver allege that Boeing Co. negligently designed and manufactured certain parts of the plane, including its “directional control mechanisms.” The complaints contend the defective parts made it hard for the pilots to maintain runway heading while taking off in high crosswinds.At least eight other passengers on flight 1404 are suing Continental. They claim the airline failed to properly operate or control the aircraft as it veered off the runway.Source: Associated Press; read full article here>>.
