The Lebanon Democrat reports Bret Tucker is seeking $2 million in his federal lawsuit against Honeywell Aerospace.
Tucker was the husband of UPS pilot Shanda Fanning of Lynchburg. Fanning and the flight captain died when UPS Flight 1354 crashed while attempting to land at a Birmingham, Alabama, airport a year ago on a flight from Louisville, Kentucky.
The twin-engine jet clipped trees and slammed into a hill short of the runway.
The lawsuit filed in Nashville says a faulty Honeywell Aerospace ground warning system didn’t go off in time to alert the pilots.
Honeywell denies its product caused the crash.
