Narrative:
The Piper Seneca (C-GPTH) was enroute from Calgary, AB to Pitt Meadows, BC, with the pilot and an instructor on board. Due to a low fuel quantity indication, the pilot elected to conduct a precautionary landing on a gravel airstrip at a closed aerodrome in Lytton, BC. At touchdown, the nose gear collapsed and both propellers contacted the ground causing substantial damage to the aircraft. Neither occupant was injured.
