Decedent was a passenger on USAir Flight 427 which crashed near Pittsburgh, PA. on September 8, 1994. The cause of the crash remains undetermined. However, it is believed that the aircraft which was on final approach to Pittsburgh International Airport departed from controlled flight as a result of an uncommanded rudder deflection precipitated by design defect within the rudder power control unit. This case was subject to the Warsaw Convention which limited the liability of USAir to $75,000.00. Decedent was survived by his second wife and minor child and three adult children from a prior marriage.
