On July 21, 2017, about 1100 central daylight time, a Stinson 108 airplane, N8954K departed the runway surface while landing at Lee's Summit Municipal Airport (KLXT), Lee's Summit, Missouri. The pilot and passenger were not injured and the airplane was substantially damaged during the landing. The airplane was registered to and operated by a private individual under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a cross-country flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time. 

The pilot reported to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector, that he was landing on runway 29, and the airplane started to drift left, so he applied the right brake; however, the brake did not respond. The airplane continued off the edge of the runway, and the right gear collapsed. An initial inspection of the airplane noted substantial damage to the right-wing spar and fuselage. 


The wreckage was retained for further examination.
