He didn't build it.


He was test-flying it in anticipation of buying it.

He had owned it for two weeks and had completed a checkout.

(I linked to one of the many sources available; I couldn't find a single one that said he didn't own it.)

clear_prop: Galloping Galoshes: D135: Maybe you should use a more practical plane rather than trying to cultivate that "rugged sky captain of yesteryear" persona

That is a perfectly practical plane.  With a dunderhead of a pilot.

You may be referring to large commercial aircraft.  Of course, this could never happen to them:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avianca_Flight_52

Add:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Transat_Flight_236

to that list.  (the Canadians really like their wide body gliders)


Don't forget this one:

Russ1642: Small planes have fuel tank dip sticks.


Not that model. You have two choices: full (25 gal) or "to the tabs" (17 gal). Subtract a gallon as unusable.

and if it was late and he didnt have a flashlight, he could have used a lighter or a match---best thing to use to check the tanks.
