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

THE INBOARD BRAKE PADS WERE WORN TO SUCH A DEGREE THAT METAL TO METAL CONTACT WAS OCCURRING. THIS GREATLY REDUCED THE AIRCRAFT'S BRAKING ABILITY. AFTER LANDING THE PILOT WAS UNABLE TO STOP THE AIRCRAFT UPON THE 3225 FOOT RUNWAY. THE AIRCRAFT RAN THROUGH A BARBED WIRE FENCE, RESULTING IN SUBSTANTIAL AIRCRAFT DAMAGE. THE AIRCRAFT'S LAST ANNUAL INSPECTION WAS COMPLETED ON 4-16-86. IT IS DOUBTFUL THAT AN ADEQUATE INSPECTION OF THE BRAKES WAS PERFORMED AT THAT TIME SINCE THEY WERE COMPLETELY WORN OUT 4.5 MONTHS LATER. THE NUMBER OF HOURS FLOWN DURING THAT TIME IS UNKNOWN.
