Tucker was the husband of UPS pilot Shanda Fanning of Lynchburg. Fanning and the flight captain died when UPS Flight 1354 crashed while attempting to land at a Birmingham, Ala. airport a year ago on a flight from Louisville.

The twin-engine jet clipped trees and slammed into a hill short of the runway.

The lawsuit filed in Nashville says a faulty Honeywell Aerospace ground warning system didn’t go off in time to alert the pilots.

Honeywell denies its product caused the crash.
