|Confidence Rating:|| Accident investigation report completed and information captured|
Only the pilot who had been contracted to ferry the aircraft was on board but there were no casualties.
The aircraft was destroyed but there was no outbreak of fire.
It is highly probable that the accident was occurred as a result of the engine of N176CD halt during the flight and not being able to start in the air, resulting in the damage of the aircraft during the forced landing.
As for the engine halt, it is somewhat likely that the exhaustion of fuel of the rear ferry tank that was being used caused the engine to power loss, and although the Pilot opened the fuel selector valve of the front ferry tank which still had remaining fuel, the fuel selector valve of the rear ferry tank was not closed which led to the air from the empty rear ferry tank entering into the fuel line prompted by the suction of the engine driven fuel pump; subsequently, hindering the supply of fuel.
It is somewhat likely that the engine could not start in the air, since the contained air in the fuel line caused a difficulty of the suction of the engine driven fuel pump, and that the inadequate functioning of the auxiliary fuel pump could not remove swiftly the contained air that was hindering the fuel suction of the engine driven fuel pump.
N176CD was canx. by FAA 16jan18 and the wreck was sold in Korea.
