The brakes failed on landing, causing the York to overran the runway. The aircraft came to rest across a river, some 250yds past the end of the runway.
The cause of the brake failure was given as a broken cable due to excessive wear over the steel rubbing blocks in the pilot's control column. Although the brake cable and blocks were removed from the control column for examination approximately 20 hours flying time before the accident, it is stated that considerable taxiing, which had necessitated frequent use of the brakes, had been necessary owing to the nature of the foreign airfields visited.
