First officer was flying aircraft from right seat. Light crosswind was present. Wind report on short final from tower was 190 degrees at 10 KTS. In landing flare aircraft got too slow and left wing dropped while only a few ft above ground. Firm landing, no noticeable noise at this time. On postflt inspection found scrape marks on left tip tank with minor hole in tank. No fuel in tank as tank was empty. Attempt was made to rectify landing but was too late. Corrective action would be to monitor continuously during critical phase of flight.
