HONOLULU (AP) – The parents of two Oklahoma brothers who were among five people killed in a Hawaii plane crash are suing the skydiving company that owned the plane.

Marshall and Phillip Cabe were about to go skydiving in May when the single-engine plane crashed and burned soon after taking off from a Kauai airport.

Honolulu attorney Rick Fried says he filed the lawsuit Monday so that the parents can find out why the plane's engine failed.

D&J Adventures Inc. owner David Timko declined to comment.

Fried says the brothers' father witnessed the crash. He says Michael Cabe arranged the skydiving tour to celebrate his sons' graduation from Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma.

Pilot Damien Horan and skydiving instructors Enzo Amitrano and Wayne Rose also died in the crash.
