The pilot had landed at Perth Airport and was taxiing in to the parking bay when the left wing collided with the right wing tip of the aircraft in the next parking bay. The pilot reported that he was turning sharply right to enter the parking bay when the right brake lost all pressure. Both engines were shut down but the aircraft did not stop before the collision. No fault was subsequently found in the aircraft's braking system.
