The pilot suffered minor injuries and his aircraft was destroyed when he deadsticked a King Air B200 onto a street in Tulsa, Okla., on December 8 about four miles from the threshold of Runway 18L at Tulsa International Airport (TUL). The airplane was about six miles from the TUL runway on a flight that originated from La Crosse, Wis., when first one engine then the other “sputtered” and quit. Auto ignition restarted the engines, but only momentarily. The 2,100-hour pilot told the NTSB that he took off for the 507-nm flight with 1,600 pounds of fuel, and that when he was some 50 nm north of TUL, the gauges indicated a total of 400 pounds of fuel remaining. There were no passengers aboard N6PE.
