On March 15, 2021 about 1030 mountain daylight time, a Cessna T210M airplane, N886KH, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Leadore, Idaho. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that the flight to Leadore Airport (U00) was smooth and uneventful. After arriving over the airport, the pilot circled the runway to determine the wind direction and examine the airport runway surface conditions. The pilot decided to land on runway 29 and after touchdown, applied brake pressure. Shortly after applying the brake pressure he realized the “brakes were not effective,” and he needed to apply more pressure during the landing roll. The airplane subsequently veered to the right exiting near the departure end of the runway. The airplane continued across the airport property impacting a small berm and came to rest near a building.

Postaccident examination of the accident site revealed that runway 29 is both a turf and gravel surfaced runway. The approach end of runway had freshly mowed bunchgrass, while the remaining runway was covered in gravel. A pair of skid marks consistent with skidding tires during braking, was found on the runway about 700 ft from the departure end. The skid marks continued off the runway and traveled through low sagebrush, impacting a small berm, through a barbed wire fence, and ended near the wreckage. The main wreckage was found about 420 ft from the departure end of the runway. The right main landing gear brake line near the wheel brake assembly was bent downward and separated from the caliper’s B-nut fitting. The horizontal stabilizers and elevators sustained substantial damage and the left main landing gear collapsed.

The wreckage was recovered to a secure facility for further examination.
