NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported that he flew a visual approach and landed near the midpoint of a 2,691 foot runway. The wind was at 5 knots and aligned with the runway, which was dry. After landing, the pilot applied “light/normal braking”, but noticed his deceleration rate was inadequate to stop on the remaining runway. The pilot subsequently applied heavier braking, but the brakes “seemed to have no effect.” Realizing he was not going to stop the airplane on the remaining runway, the pilot attempted a go-around near the departure end of the runway. The airplane never became airborne, departed the runway, and impacted an airport perimeter fence. Substantial damage to the airplane included impact damage to both wings and ailerons. A post-accident examination conducted by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) personnel documented skid marks from the accident airplane near the departure end of the runway. FAA personnel also conducted a post-accident examination of the braking system of the airplane, with no abnormal findings.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot’s inadequate braking action and decision to abort the landing near the departure end of the runway. Contributing to the accident was the pilot’s attempt to land near the midpoint of the runway.
