The judge dismissed a second claim made against an airport traffic controller who was al- leged to have been negligent in not warning the light plane's pilot about the danger from jet turbulence. The damage claim based on the turbulence argument was believed to be Ihe first lawsuit of its kind in Canada. The action resulted from the crash of a twin-engine Piper Aztec near Vancouver Interna- tional Airport April 22, 1963.
