On 31 October 1999, a Boeing 767-300ER Aircraft operated by Egypt Air was en-route to Cairo Egypt having departed John J Kennedy International Airport, New York City. The aircraft crashed into the Atlantic Ocean about 100km south of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts killing all 217 passenger on board. The U.S. crash investigators immediately raised the specter of pilot suicide, but any “evidence” of such mass homicide soon evaporated upon closer examination by Mr Floyd Wisner of Wisner law firm acting on behalf of the Asia Pacific Claims Management clients.

Asia Pacific represented the families of 48 victims in the case against Boeing and a component manufacturer.
