Piel CP301A Emeraude, G-AYEC
The pilot became distracted during his pre-flight inspection of the aircraft and did not check the fuel state. The aircraft subsequently took off with an almost empty fuel tank and the engine stopped running soon after. The pilot carried out a forced landing and, although the aircraft was badly damaged, he escaped serious injury.
