During an interview, conducted by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector, the pilot reported that after landing "long and hot" he applied the brakes and the airplane skidded on the wet turf. When the airplane reached the end of the turf strip it struck a paved area with the main landing gear, with the brakes still applied, and the airplane nosed over to the inverted position.
