Indonesia suffered the worst aviation disaster in its history on September 26, 1997 when Garuda Flight 152 crashed into a hillside on approach to Medan, resulting in 224 deaths. The Garuda pilot was off course and flying below his assigned altitude, making the airline the most obvious responsible party. However, jurisdiction for an action against this state-owned airline was available only in Indonesia. Therefore, Floyd Wisner looked to other responsible parties to obtain fair compensation for his 28 Indonesian and European clients. Floyd Wisner brought an action in the U.S. against Sundstrand Corp., the U.S. manufacturer of the Ground Proximity Warning Computer (GPWC) on the accident aircraft, and established that the GPWC had failed to give the flight crew a timely alert of approaching terrain. Had the GPWC operated as warranted, the crash would have been avoided and 224 lives saved. After 5 years of hard-fought litigation, Floyd Wisner obtained settlements for his clients, which stand as record payments to non-Americans in a foreign domestic air crash.
