Alaska commuter plane crash kills one, injures several

New York residents will be saddened to hear about a twin-engine Peninsula Airways flight that crashed just off the runway at Alaska's Unalaska/Dutch Harbor Airport, killing one passenger. This was the first passenger death on a U.S. commercial flight in over a year.

Bomber plane crash near Hartford kills seven, injures six

On October 2, 2019, an old bomber plane crashed near Hartford, Connecticut, killing seven and injuring six. The plane, a Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress, was built in 1944 and designed to withstand battle damage. However, as New York residents can guess, the plane is not so safe for transporting passengers as it is not up to modern airplane safety standards.

Questions arise over safety of vintage aircraft

For many aviation enthusiasts across New York and the nation, traveling in small, World War II-era planes and other aircraft is a dream come true, but a recent deadly Connecticut crash is calling into question the safety of these historic aircraft. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, we recognize that safety protocols were far different back in the 1940s than they are today, and we also recognize that traveling in these historic aircraft can bring with it considerable risk.

What happens if someone has a medical emergency during a flight?

There are many things that you and other New York residents may be afraid of when you fly, ranging from electrical malfunctions on the plane to the pilot losing control and crashing. While these occurrences may be rare, other in-flight mishaps, such as medical emergencies, are more common. You may wonder if there are standard protocols to deal with such events.

Why are seatbelts crucial to flight safety?

When New York residents are buckling in for a flight, it can be easy to undervalue the importance of a seatbelt. After all, many people feel it is an extraneous addition when plane crashes are so severe. Do seatbelts in airplanes actually help maintain a level of safety?
