A retired Air Force Colonel and flight instructor gave one of his students a hands-on lesson on the foremost principle of flying: Don't run out of gas. Al Uhalt of Colorado Springs made a bumpy but safe landing in a field Thursday when the single-engine Aviat Husky he and a student were flying ran out of fuel near the end of a 45-minute lesson.

Neither Uhalt nor the student, 16-year-old Kyle Sundman, was injured and the plane was undamaged.

Uhalt says he's embarrassed. Kyle's grandfather who owns the plane, was flying behind them. He says he didn't worry because he knew Uhalt was experienced and the plane was rugged.

That is the first of the three most useless things to a pilot.

1. Fuel back at the airport

2. Altitude above you

3. 5 seconds ago

(CAP training many years ago in Colorado.)

I knew a Battle of Britain Sq. Ldr. a few years back who told me he once had to bail out over the Channel when his Hurricane ran out of Petrol (as he put it) seems upon his return to base he discovered that the ground crew had forgot "to put the ruddy stuff in the tanks" most annoying plenty of bullets no Petrol.
