On June 9, 2022, about 1145 mountain daylights time, a Cub Crafters CC19-215, N61KT, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near McCall, Idaho. The pilot and flight instructor were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 instructional flight.

The pilot of a tailwheel equipped airplane reported that during the landing roll on runway 34, while applying brakes, the left “brake flopped under his foot with no pressure” and the airplane veered to the right. While attempting to correct with brake and rudder, the airplane exited the right side of the runway and ground looped to the right. The left wing and horizontal stabilizer struck a surface.

Postaccident examination by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed that the left brake fluid hose had separated near the brake caliper fitting. The left wing and elevator were substantially damaged.

The airplane was recovered for further examination.
