Piper PA-28-161 Cherokee Warrior II, G-BODR


Following a cross country flight, which had been conducted in the main with the right fuel tank selected, the pilot elected to carry out a touch-and-go landing to conduct some circuit practise. During the climb out following the touch-and-go the engine rapidly lost power and subsequently stopped. A forced landing in a field was carried out during which the landing gear was damaged. Subsequent examination revealed that there was 50 litres of fuel in the left fuel tank but only 150 millilitres in the right tank and no evidence of a fuel leak. The engine was found to be serviceable.
