  • Lawsuit filed against Airbus, Airasia over flight QZ8501 crash

    SINGAPORE: One of the world’s leading aviation lawyers has filed a lawsuit on behalf of families of passengers aboard Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 that crashed into the Java Sea in December last year. On Dec 28, 2014, the Airbus A320 was travelling from Surabaya, Indonesia to Singapore when it crashed in bad weather, killing all 155 passengers and seven crew members on board. However, the preliminarily investigations found that while weather was a factor, the aircraft suffered a malfunction of the fly-by-wire system. The principal of Chicago-based Wisner Law Firm, Floyd Wisner who has been involved in every major air disaster for the past two decades, including many Airbus incidents, said problems with Airbus had spanned many years. “Airbus and its supplier manufacturers are aware of the problems that cause the fly-by-wire protection to malfunction, yet they appear to have done nothing about it, despite many incidents,” he said in a statement here.
