3 Bay Area Families Suing Boeing For Deadly Asiana Crash At SFO

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Three Bay Area families are suing Boeing over the deadly crash of an Asiana Airlines jetliner in San Francisco.

The suits filed Thursday alleged that the maker of the Boeing 777 provided inadequate training to pilots in South Korea.

However, it didn’t make clear whether Boeing trained the pilots of Flight 214, which crashed last month while landing at San Francisco International Airport, killing three teenagers.

A crash survivor was among those suing.

The families also claimed that Boeing should have added a  “low airspeed” voice warning for pilots to the 777 following the similar crash of a Boeing 737 in Amsterdam four years ago.

Boeing couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday.
