The family of a Bombardier test pilot who was killed the crash of a Canadair Challenger in Wichita, Kan., filed suit against four manufacturers: Rockwell Collins Inc., Parker Hannifin Corp., Honeywell, and Lucas Aerospace Power Equipment Corp. The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $75,000 and alleges defective equipment contributed to the crash. The NTSB has not yet issued a final report on the probable cause of the accident even though it's been more than two years since the Challenger 604 business jet crashed on takeoff, killing the pilot and two others.
