James Monahan was copiloting a twin-engine 1956 Convair CV-580 for Air Tahoma which is a cargo airline, when the plane crashed during its flight. James was 57 at the time of his death.
His wife sued Air Tahoma on the behalf of his estate. The case claims that Air Tahoma, the defendent, was negligent because they did not maintain the plane properly. This poor maintenace ultimately lead to the plane crash. The plaintiffs claim that Air Tahoma had reversed the control system on the plane. This means that the trim cables, which are used to bring the plane up and down, were not working properly. This case was settled before it went to trial for $2.5 million.
