According to the pilot, during the flight he had performed several flybys without incident. On final approach the airplane lost all utility hydraulic pressure. During rollout he shut down, but was unable to stop with the unboosted brakes.
The FAA coordinator reported its investigation revealed that the engine driven No. 3 system auxiliary hydraulic boost pump internally failed. Metal particles were found in its screen.
