Narrative:
After touchdown, the pilot applied the brakes and found that there was no pressure in the left brake. As the remaining runway distance was inadequate for a go-around to be commenced, the pilot initiated a ground-loop to the right. During the ground-loop, the left wheel entered a depression, resulting in damage to the main wheel, left wing, nose gear and propeller.
