He said when he landed the left brake failed, and as he approached the end of the airstrip, he attempted a 180-degree turn, but the airplane ground-looped, and struck the right wing on the ground. The pilot said that on previous flights he had to pump-up the left brake due to a leaking master cylinder. The airplane sustained structural damage to the right wing during the accident.
