On February 4, 1998, at 1530 mountain standard time, a Cessna 210A, N9489X, sustained substantial damage during landing roll at Morgan County Airport, Ogden, Utah. The private pilot and sole occupant was not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for this personal, local area flight operating under Title 14 CFR part 91.

According to an interview with the pilot by the IIC (Investigator In Charge), during landing roll, the right brake "grabbed" and he lost control of the aircraft and hit a hangar beside the runway/ramp (there are no taxiways). The aircraft then went up on a wing tip, the nose landing gear collapsed and the aircraft came down on the other wing tip. Wind at the time, according to the pilot, was calm.

The pilot provided information in his report of the accident that he had a total of 6 hours in type and that his flight time was all accumulated in the previous 90 days with 5 hours occurring in the last 30 days. He reported his total flight time as 770 hours. (See attached NTSB Form 6120.1/2)

Examination of the aircraft by an FAA airworthiness inspector provided no evidence of brake malfunction or any other system failure or malfunction. In addition, the inspector provided information after examining the aircraft logs, that the aircraft was out of annual inspection.
