Teledyne Continental Motors, Vibratech Inc., Stevens Aviation, and RAM Aircraft

David and Ann Drye along with Mark Carlson and pilot Kelly Ward were in a plane crash that killed all those on board. An engine failure caused the Dryes' Cessna 421 to crash into a wooded area near the airport. The Drye family filed a lawsuit against Teledyne Continental Motors, which made the airplane's engines; Vibratech Inc., maker of an engine component; Stevens Aviation, which had provided services to the aircraft; and RAM Aircraft, which had overhauled it. In the wrongful death settlement, Teledyne Continental Motors paid $20 million; RAM Aircraft agreed to pay $3 million; Vibratech Inc. paid $2.8 million; and Stevens Aviation agreed to pay $250,000.
