Boeing sued over US-Poland plane that crash-landed
CHICAGO (AP) - Passengers on a plane that crash-landed in Poland last year when its landing gear failed to deploy have sued Boeing and the firm that inspected the airliner before it departed New Jersey.
One attorney said his clients suffered severe emotional trauma from thinking they were about to die.
A lawsuit claiming both physical and psychological damage was filed this week in Chicago, where Boeing is headquartered. It contends that design flaws in the 767-300 led to fluid leaking from the hydraulic system.
It said workers of New York-based Mach II Maintenance should have detected it.
