Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
After making two low passes over the runway, the pilot landed on the third approach. During the rollout the brakes had little effect in slowing the aircraft, which subsequently overran the southeast end of the airstrip, rolling down an embankment before coming to rest upright. A post accident inspection of the 1,500 foot grass airstrip revealed that it had been mowed very short and was very wet. The airplane had sustained substantial damage to its right wing, firewall and engine mounts. The pilot stated that he hadn't experienced any mechanical difficulties or malfunctions with the airplane that contributed to the accident.

Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to perform remedial action during the landing sequence. A factor contributing to the accident was the wet runway surface.
