Representation of a family in the tragic death of a father and husband, a Qualcomm executive, killed in a midair collision on August 16, 2015.

The defendants in the action included the international corporation responsible for air traffic control at Brown Field Municipal Airport in San Diego County.
The North American Sabreliner, later sold as the Rockwell Sabreliner, is an American mid-sized business jet. It was named “Sabreliner” due to the similarity of the wing and tail to North American’s F-86 Sabre jet fighter.
