NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

According to the pilot, the airplane touched down 1000 feet down the 2400-foot long runway. The airplane rolled off the end of the runway into the grass, and came to rest in the water. During the examination of the runway, there was a 472-foot black skid mark observed leading to the left main landing gear on the runway; there was not a skid mark leading to the right main landing gear. It was observed that the left main tire was flat with a hole, indicating it had been worn from braking. The right tire was fully inflated and showed no signs of excessive wear. There were indications of hydraulic fluid leakage on the right main gear leg at the pivot joint which allows movement of the gear leg during retraction. The pilot reported that recent brake maintenance had been performed on the airplane.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

the pilot's excessive airspeed and misjudgment of the landing distance. A factor was the right brake not working due to a hydraulic leak.
