The Brasilia suffered braking problems after arrival at Manaus. The pilot attempted to stop the plane using reverse thrust, but the propellers were already feathered. The engines first developed forward power before the props entered the reverse pitch. The airplane continued to move forward and ran off the ramp and collided with a grass embankment.
