August 13, 2009, Rifle, Colo., Pitts S2S Experimental


The pilot had just completed practice for his air show performance and was landing. The pilot stated he landed fast and while braking to make an intersection, the brakes became hot and the right brake began to fade. The airplane began to track to the left and the pilot steered the airplane between two taxi lights. The airplane impacted a taxiway sign, breaking the lower right inboard spar.
