After an uneventful flight from Merimbula the pilot overflew the strip at Paynesville and made a circuit
prior to landing into the east in a south easterly wind of eight knots. Just after touchdown, he applied the
hand brake and about this time the toe of his right shoe slipped into and became jammed in the hole in the
centre of the rudder toe-brake pedal. After the aircraft had run straight for some yards the pilot
endeavoured to free his foot by pushing with it against the pedal. He continued to use the hand brake but
the aircraft veered in a gentle curve to the right and ran off the strip and the starboard wing struck a fence
post against which the aircraft came to rest.
