Investigating agency: BFU Germany
Narrative:
The aircraft crashed in a wooded area while on approach to Moosburg Airfield in Bavaria, Germany.
Both occupants died in the crash.

According to initial police information: The pilot probably wanted to stop for refueling, but aborted the landing due to problems and took off again. Around 150 to 170 meters after the unsuccessful attempt to land, the aircraft then crashed into a forest.

According to the latest investigation report by the BFU, it is most likely the plane ran out of fuel. Only about 0.7 liters of fuel were found in the main tank. The reserve tank was still filled to the top with 9.5 liters of fuel. The fuel selector was set to the reserve tank, the main tank was closed. According to eyewitnesses, during a flyover over runway 22, the engine started to splutter. While conducting a turn to land on runway 04, the plane crashed into a wooded area. The plane wasn't equipped with a fuel gauge, just with a fuel flow meter (FC-10 Fuel Computer).
