Summary

The Cessna "Dragonfly" returned for a landing after a brief practice session in the training area. However, during that period the weather in the control zone had deteriorated, with visibility reduced in heavy rain associated with a passing thunderstorm. The aircraft was subsequently cleared to land on runway 29C. Although the touchdown was normal the aircraft failed to stop and overran the runway end, before colliding with the perimeter fence. The pilot reported there had been a large quantity of standing water on the runway at the time of the occurrence. The loss of braking efficiency was consistent with aquaplaning. In addition, the pilot believed there had been a slight downwind component on the landing runway.
