Narrative:
According to the pilot, the flight was uneventful up until the point of landing. After landing and during roll-out, the pilot observed that although brakes were being applied, there was no braking action on the left side. The pilot advised that he continued to apply brakes, whilst maintaining back pressure on the yoke, however, only the right brakes responded and subsequently there was a loss of directional control that led to a runway excursion taking place (to the left).
The aircraft received extensive damages including to its left propeller and wing, nose cone, left main gear and assembly, undercarriage. There were no injuries were reported in relation to this accident.
