On May 27, 1993, about 1658 eastern daylight time, N11831, a Cessna 150L, registered to B & M Classic Aero Inc. crashed in Fort Myers, Florida, while on a 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and no flight plan was filed. The airplane was substantially damaged and the pilot reported no injuries. The flight had originated from Arcadia, Florida, about 1315 the same day.

The pilot was an Austrian citizen with a temporary U.S. private pilot's certificate. He stated he rented the airplane, filled both fuel tanks and departed to practice touch-and-go landings at various airports. About 3 hours 43 minutes later, the engine failed due to fuel exhaustion, and he initiated a forced landing to a residential area. The airplane collided with trees during the landing.

Examination of the aircraft by crash rescue personnel revealed about 1/2 gallon of fuel in both fuel tanks. Multiple requests for an operator's report of aircraft accident were met with negative results.
