I can eeasily beat that.

I was crash fire Rescue till last year at AFW.

I made an incident where a retired Col. landed wheels up with his young grandson aboard.

After a fly by he circled and landed and forgot one little step.

Is he embarrassed he ran out of gas or failing to teach his student basic pre-flight? What is worse

It wasn’t fuel loss (like it leaked out), it was fuel exhaustion, he just ran out of gas.

A salty old guy that I used to fly with told me years ago that "Three most useless things to a pilot were fuel left in the gas truck; altitude above you; and ideals you hadn't thought of yet".

God rest his sole. I took that adage to heart.
