Stunt pilot's family seeks $20 million in Travis Air Show death

The family of a Half Moon Bay stunt pilot that died during an air show at Travis Air Force base is seeking $20 million in damages from the federal government.

Eddie Andreini's plane crashed before 85,000 people during a show in May.

The 77-year-old's family claims emergency crews did not respond quickly enough to free him after his plane caught fire after the crash.

An attorney says he was unhurt when the aircraft came to rest but was trapped. NTSB investigators found that it took fire crews three to four minutes to get to the crash site. An autopsy report showed he died of severe burns.
