I suspect more aircraft run out of fuel on a three mile final than anywhere else.

Running out of fuel doesn't cause aircraft to "fall out of the sky" as described in the article. Airplanes fly fine without fuel, just not for very long or very far.
Stall/spin is what makes airplanes fall out of the sky. That Cessna was not flying when it crashed. It was plummeting.
