WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - FlightSafety International is suing nearly 20 companies over a fatal plane crash at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport.

A Beechcraft King Air B200 crashed into a FlightSafety building at the airport in October 2014, killing four people and injuring six. The building and several flight simulators were destroyed.

The lawsuit filed this week alleges the various companies contributed to the crash because of negligence, breach of implied warranty and other counts. It does not indicate the amount of damages FlightSafety is seeking.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2fbewFR ) a FlightSafety spokesman said Wednesday the company wouldn’t elaborate on its reasons for filing the lawsuit.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the plane was in the air for just over a minute when it crashed. The pilot, Mark Goldstein, was among the dead.
