Ikuko Hatano, a woman whose daughter died in the 2003 Sundance Helicopters crash in the Grand Canyon, was awarded $3.2 million in damages by a Clark County jury. During an air-tour sightseeing flight on Sept. 20, 2003, a Sundance-operated Eurocopter AS 350BA collided with a canyon wall and crashed. The accident took place during a VFR descent into Descent Canyon, about 1.5 miles east of the Grand Canyon West Airport. All seven on board were killed. The NTSB has not issued its final report yet.
