Suit filed in deadly Kauai glider crash

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) The widow of a Southern California man who died when his motorized hang glider crashed off Kauai is suing the flight company and aircraft manufacturer.

Cynthia Foreman says defective equipment prevented her husband, 53-year-old Ray Foreman of Vista, Calif., and pilot Steve Sprague from freeing themselves when the glider went into the ocean off Honopu Beach on May 17.

Foreman and Sprague died. Cynthia Foreman and her husband were vacationing on Kauai at the time. The National Transportation Safety Board has said witnesses heard a loud pop as the aircraft turned toward the ocean.

According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://bit.ly/walcjz ), Cynthia Foreman filed the lawsuit on Friday in federal court in Honolulu.

A call to a listing for the flight company, Kauai Aerosports, on Saturday was not immediately returned. No one picked up the phone at the U.K.-based aircraft maker, P&M Aviation.
