AIR CARGO CRASH CAUSED BY LOAD SHIFT

On August 7, 1997, a McDonnell Douglas DC-8-61F aircraft operated as Fine Air Flight 101, a cargo flight en route from Miami International Airport to Santo Domingo- Las Americas International Airport in the Dominican Republic, crashed on initial climb, killing all crew members aboard. The said aircraft was loaded with blue-jean fabric which was later found to have exceeded the aircraft’s cargo weight limit. In addition, investigation revealed that the cargo was improperly secured, shifted aft during rotation, producing an extreme aft center of gravity.

As a result of the crash, wrongful death claims were brought by Nolan Law Group on behalf of families of two crewmembers who perished. The complaints filed alleged that the cargo hauling company was negligent in its loading and securing of the cargo on the aircraft causing the load shift. The complaint likewise alleged negligence on the part of the aircraft owner for failure to exercise ordinary care in its control and maintenance of the subject. Fine Air was also sued for willful and wanton misconduct. The case was settled prior to trial.
