Rep. Gary Knopp’s widow has filed a counter complaint against High Adventure Air Charters, the Soldotna company whose plane collided with Knopp’s last summer.
Representatives of four of the crash victims allege that Knopp was negligent in his operation of the aircraft because he was flying without a valid medical certificate.
Rep. Gary Knopp was denied a medical certificate in June 2012 because of vision problems.
Friends, colleagues and clients remembered him as a cheerful, skilled pilot and a man of faith.
They are the Anderson Group, Bob Evans of Anchorage, the team of Mark Hickey and David Rogers, Kevin Jardell of Juneau, and Sam Kito, the third, also of Juneau.
