Couple Anthony Maslin and Marite Norris' heartbreak was laid bare in court documents lodged as part of their claim for compensation from the airline, and details the depths of their despair when sons Mo, 12, and Otis, 8, and daughter Evie, 10, were killed along with their grandfather, Nick Norris, as they returned home to Perth in 2014.
