METRO AVIATION INC., et al., Plaintiffs,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendant.
Metro Aviation, Inc., by counsel (Metro), has filed a Petition for Rehearing in the captioned matter. The United States has filed a memorandum in opposition to the petition.
Metro argues that the Court made a factual finding that Metro and/or its pilot were negligent. We did not make such a finding; rather, we alluded in the Opinion to acknowledgements by Metro that there could have been some illusions experienced by the pilot and perhaps an electrical failure in the aircraft. This does not constitute a finding of negligence.
Due consideration having been given,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Petition for Rehearing is DENIED.
The Clerk of this Court is directed to provide notice of this Order to all counsel of record.
