LANCASTER : Plane That Crashed Ran Out of Fuel, Inquiry Finds

July 31, 1993

A twin-engine plane ran out of fuel before it crashed, killing six people, but it is unclear why the pilot was unable to glide to a landing, an investigator said.

Why he lost control may never be known, said Don Llorente, a supervisory air safety investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board. Witnesses said the plane spiraled out of control Sunday before it nose-dived into the ground in Lancaster, about six miles from a small airport it had radioed for landing instructions.

The names of the victims were released Thursday by the county coroner's office. They were the pilot, Israel Feldman, 34, of Sherman Oaks; Orit Mor, 30, Feldman's fiance from Israel; Oren Amrani, 27, and his siblings Alon, 21, and Tali Amrani, 16, all of Agoura Hills, and Daphna Zachar, 27, of Studio City.
