Bombardier, GE and China Eastern sued over China plane crash
3 November 2005

Relatives of 20 people killed in last year’s China Eastern Airlines Canadair RJ crash in Baotou, have filed a civil suit in a U.S. court against General Electric, Bombardier, Bombardier Aerospace and China Eastern Airlines. The plaintiffs are suing the companies for unspecified compensation over alleged defects in their products, and the carrier for its alleged failure to inspect, maintain and repair the aircraft. Eighteen relatives have also signed a letter sent to the State Council’s crash investigation team, urging it to release the results of its investigation. (China Economic Net)
