It was reported last month that a U.S. aircraft crashed in southern Afghanistan, killing three U.S. service members and one civilian employee. We were not surprised when we read the aircraft that went down was the Air Force CV-22 Osprey. The cause of the crash of the Osprey was not known, according to a statement by the International Security Assistance Force. Several other service members were also injured in the crash which occurred late at night on April 8th. The CV-22, which conducts long-range infiltration and resupply operations for the U.S. military, crashed seven miles west of the city of Qalat, the capital of Zabul province.
While the Taliban claimed its fighters shot down the aircraft, you may recall that the Osprey has a history of problems unrelated to combat flying. We have successfully handled litigation against the manufacturer of the Osprey. If you would like to have more information on the Osprey litigation, you can contact Cole Portis, who heads up our Product Liability Section, at 800-898-2034, or by email at Cole.Portis@beasleyallen.com.
