The Ambassador broke out of the clouds during a straight-in approach to runway 13 but appeared to be too high. A 360deg turn to the left was made and the aircraft touched down far down the wet runway (with 3500 feet remaining). Brakes had no effect, so the aircraft ran off the runway. The port undercarriage and nose wheel were torn off and the plane came to rest against a mount of excavated earth.
