WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A drill bit left during repair of a single-engine Cessna aircraft is responsible for a 2015 crash in Arkansas that caused minor injuries to the pilot and destroyed the new $712,290 aircraft, a federal lawsuit alleged.
The complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Kansas against Textron Aviation in U.S. by Mid-Continent Aircraft Corp. of Missouri and its insurance company involves the purchase of a 2014 Cessna T206H Stationair TC aircraft.
The lawsuit alleges the misplaced drill bit was the cause of the crash and that Cessnas parent company Textron refuses to pay for the loss of the aircraft.
