Privately registered Cessna 180 – Fuel Exhaustion – Force Landing

C-GODA, a privately registered Cessna 180 aircraft, was conducting a flight from Toronto/Oshawa Executive, ON (CYOO) to Richmond Intl, VA (KRIC) with only the pilot on board. During the approach to KRIC, the aircraft encountered a fuel exhaustion situation and the engine stopped. During the forced landing to a baseball field short of Runway 20, the aircraft clipped power lines and collided with terrain.
The pilot was uninjured, however there was substantial damage to the aircraft’s right wing left struts and floats.
