Five months after Troy Gentry died in a helicopter crash in New Jersey, the country star's widow, Angie Gentry, has filed suit against the companies that manufactured the aircraft he was riding in that day. According to Courthouse News Service, the lawsuit filed against Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and Keystone Helicopter Corp. states that the companies failed to make the Model 269 helicopter crashworthy, leaving occupants with no chance of survival in case of an emergency.The lawsuit claims that there were multiple defects in the aircraft, which the companies knew about but were unknown to the average user and consumer of the helicopter. The complaint also alleges that companies "made it a point to hide and deny" the problems, which it says "could and did cause serious personal injury and death."In a statement, a spokeswoman for Sikorsky said they were fully cooperating with the National Transportation Safety Board [NTSB] and declined to comment further due to the investigation.
