September 10, 2010, Brenham, Texas, Embraer 500 (Phenom 100)


At approximately 1230 Central time, the airplane received minor damage after a runway excursion during landing. The pilot and co-pilot were not injured. Visual conditions prevailed.

According to the pilot, the crew received a brake-fail warning soon after takeoff and continued to their destination. The crew conducted an straight-in instrument approach at the destination. After touchdown, the pilot discovered “zero” braking and reverted to emergency braking. Both main tires blew after application of emergency braking, and directional control of the airplane was lost. The airplane departed the left side of the runway and the right main landing gear collapsed after contacting soft muddy turf alongside the runway. Both crewmembers exited through the cabin door.
