Another "classic" bites the dust. Hope it wasn't pilot induced fuel exhaustion.

"Fuel Delivery Problems". That covers a wide berth. Let's see: Four Tanks, Engine and Auxiliary Fuel Pumps, Fuel Selector, Vents, Valves.... Anonymous may have guessed the correct factor, though I'd hedge my bet with fuel Starvation.

Paved roads are expensive; paved roads with landing gear are very uncommon.
Or the landing gear disappeared enroute, leaving the plane with no landing gear (air soluble gear)?
Word selection and sentence construction is always useful; sometimes critical.
Editors. Sometimes they can be beneficial.

Thanks to Kathyrn's Report for keeping us up to date on all these tidbits. A very useful site.

I don't mean to poke fun at a tragedy - only poking at some writer in Texico (yes, I have been through there many times).
