Troy Gentry's wife Angie has filed a lawsuit over his death in a helicopter crash in September. Angie Gentry is suing the manufacturers of the aircraft.

Filed in the Philadelphia, Pa., Court of Common Pleas on Wednesday (Feb. 14), Angie Gentry's lawsuit, Courthouse News Service reports, claims that Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, Sikorsky Global Helicopters, Inc. and the Keystone Helicopter Corporation failed to make the Model 269 helicopter crashworthy, leaving its occupants no chance of survival.

“The dangers from the lack of crashworthiness and defects in the engine, transmission and sprag clutch, throttle cables, engine attachments and absence of crashworthy features were unknown to the average user and consumer of this helicopter but well known to these defendants who made it a point to hide and deny and problems that could and did cause serious personal injury and death,” Angie Gentry's lawsuit states. The manufacturers' choices "treated the helicopter and its engine like an unwanted burden, while creating a serious and regular risk of serious injury or death as a result."
