The right wing sustained substantial damage.
The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
The Federal Aviation Administration Aviation Safety Inspector who examined the airplane postaccident reported that he found no anomalies with the brake system or wheels.
