Troy Gentry's Widow Files Lawsuit

posted by Callie Hoch -

The widow of Troy Gentry is suing over his death in a sightseeing helicopter crash.  Angie Gentry has filed a lawsuit against Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation and Keystone Helicopter Corporation for multiple defects in the doomed aircraft.  The complaint states, "Because of defects in the engine, throttle cable attachment and collective control, the helicopter did not enter autorotation as expected, it did not disengage smartly from the transmission, so the engine rotors slowed to a speed lower than would permit a safe autorotation, thus allowing the helicopter to drop like a stone to the ground below, killing all aboard."  Gentry died last September in Medford, New Jersey at the age of 50.  He and Montgomery Gentry duo partner Eddie Montgomery were scheduled to perform there that night.
