1999-03-03: C-GNSC, a Cessna 210 with a pilot and 4 passengers, was completing an IFR flight from Winnipeg to City Centre Airport in Edmonton and the pilot was provided vectors for the localizer for Runway 16. Nearing the XD beacon, the pilot was instructed to contact Edmonton FSS (Tower was closed) and after contacting FSS, reported that he had a fuel problem and did not think he could make the runway. Moments later, the pilot advised FSS that he was landing in a field. FSS staff called 911 and it was later reported that the pilot had force-landed safely in a field in a residential area about 4 miles north of the threshold on Runway 16. Weather was reported to be IMC at the time of the occurrence. OPI - Enforcement UPDATE TSB reported that the preliminary investigation revealed that the loss of engine power was due to fuel exhaustion. The a/c touched down hard on a snow-covered field which resulted in damage to the landing gear and propeller. There were no injuries among the 5 occupants.
