Air Crash Lawsuits Head To Mediation

Two lawsuits brought against the operator of Jackson’s air traffic control service being sought by the former wife of the pilot killed in the crash of his plane in 2010 and by the deceased pilot’s estate are apparently headed for mediation.  41-year-old Luke Bucklin died along with his three sons, 14-year olds Nick and Nate and 12 year-old Noah when the plane he was flying crashed in the Wind River Mountains near Gannett Peak.  The lawsuits claim the air traffic controller provided a flight path over the mountains with insufficient altitude.  The lawsuits name Serco Inc., the Virginia-based company that provides air traffic control services at the Jackson Hole Airport.  That company denies blame in the crash.  Radio transmissions from Bucklin just before the crash suggest that he encountered downdrafts known as Mountain waves which forced him down at about 11,000 feet in the Wind River Mountains on October 25th, 2010.

  • Retaking hunter safety was a good idea - September 16, 2014
    My son Colby and I spent every night last week learning the difference between legal and ethical, a hangfire or a misfire, and the legal calibers for deer or elk.
