Détails:
The right engine of the aircraft failed three times in flight between San Antonio (SAT) and Dallas-Redbird (RBD). After the last failure near the middle marker the pilot feathered the propeller. The aircraft collided with power lines and the ground about 400 yards short of runway 31 at the Redbird Airport. The right fuel selector was positioned to the left rear tank and the left selector was positioned to the off position. The left wing tanks were intact and empty. Both engines had failed due to fuel exhaustion. Two airports were overflown that were adequate for landing and that had fuel available. This was the co-pilot's first flight.

Probable Cause:

CAUSES:
fluid, fuel - exhaustion
