A Raytheon 390, N351CW, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident in Naples Airport, FL (APF).
The pilot and three passengers and two dogs were not injured.

According to the pilot, the flight from Indianapolis International Airport (IND), Indiana to Naples Municipal Airport (APF), Florida was uneventful. During landing runway 23 [6,600' long], he applied normal braking and the airplane started to slow down. Suddenly the brakes "faded away," and he was unable to stop the airplane. He further described that he applied full braking pressure and the pedals were operating as they should, but the airplane was not stopping. He further stated that every few feet the brakes would grab, lock-up for a few feet, and then release. The brakes grabbed several times during the landing roll but were not slowing the airplane down. The airplane overran the end of the runway, and the pilot steered the airplane into the grass and away from a jet blast fence.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to both wings during the runway excursion.
