July 31, 2009, Deming, N.M., Vans RV6A Experimental


While on final approach to land, the pilot initiated a go-around due to a glider on the runway. When he added power, the engine quit, forcing the pilot to land short of the runway. The airplane impacted the airports perimeter fence. The right fuel tank was empty and the fuel selector was on the left tank. Investigators confirmed flow from the left tank and no flow from the right tank.
