Boeing Pays Victims of El Al Crash

Download PDF for this date

The Boeing company has reached settlements with 547 people who lived in apartments here destroyed by an E1 A1 cargo plane crash in October 1992.

Boeing was the manufacturer of the plane.

Some 1,300 claims were filed in connection with the crash, which occurred shortly after takeoff and claimed the lives of 47 people.

The amounts of the awards were not made public, according to the terms of the settlements. But reports here said claimants received at least $10,000, and in some cases substantially more.
