TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – The family of pilot David Duncan, who died in a 2011 when a twin engine Cessna 310 crashed at the Tupelo airport, has settled its lawsuit with the city aviation authority.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/18eDlF2 ) that the terms of the settlement are confidential.

Duncan’s daughters, filed suit in January in Lee County claiming negligence by the airport authority.

A National Transportation Safety Board report says there was a loose nut on a fuel line on the airplane.

NTSB says anti-tamper putty around the nut was broken. The putty indicates if a nut has been loosened – purposely or by causes like vibration. NTSB says a mechanic told investigators he tightened the nut to proper torque but didn’t have anti-tamper putty to put around it.
