On August 2005, a Tuninter ATR-72 ran out of fuel and was forced to ditch in the sea near Palermo, Italy. Of the 39 people on board, 16 lost their lives. The mistake was simply the installation of the wrong fuel gauge from a similar model of plane. This displayed an inaccurate reading; significantly higher than what fuel was actually on board.
