The family of a U.S. senator whose son was killed in a plane crash is seeking damages in a lawsuit that alleges negligence against the aircraft’s manufacturers. The suit, filed in Tulsa County District Court, claims the 2013 crash that killed 51-year-old Perry Dyson Inhofe II was due to the failure of manufacturers to provide proper maintenance on the plane’s engine and its parts. Inhofe, a licensed pilot, was the son of Sen. Jim Inhofe. The suit names Honeywell International Inc., Standard Aero, Standard Aero (Alliance) Inc. and International Jet Service Corp. as Defendants. A National Transportation Safety Board report on the accident says the pilot didn’t “appropriately manage” the aircraft when one of its engines shut down. It will be interesting to see how this case develops as it proceeds through the system.
