SummaryWhile on a sightseeing trip, the plane ran out of fuel and crashed. Carelessness and negligence on the part of the pilot for not replenishing his fuel supply before it got dangerously low and poor judgment on his part for attempting to return to the airport when there was open terrain ahead of him. Many passengers did not use their seatbelts nor were they instructed in their use.
