Runway excursion due to brake failure at Owen Roberts International Airport, Grand Cayman, on 27 January 2015.
The aircraft was approaching the airport on Grand Cayman when the crew noticed that the hydraulic system fluid contents were low. They delayed landing until the appropriate crew drills had been actioned. However, during the latter stages of the landing roll, the crew sensed a lack of brake retardation, directional control was lost and the aircraft left the right side of the runway onto the grass. There was no consequential damage.
