After Kenneth Swanson was killed in an airplane crash, Swanson's estate filed a wrongful death action against the manufacturer of the airplane's carburetor (Borg-Warner Corporation, Marvel-Schebler/Tillotson, Facet Aerospace Products and Facet Enterprises; hereinafter "Borg-Warner"). Borg-Warner filed contribution claims against several third-party defendants, including Avco Corporation, the engine manufacturer (hereinafter "Avco"). In this appeal, Borg-Warner challenges the trial court's grant of summary judgment in favor of Avco.
