With that in mind the pilot proceeded with the takeoff. On a subsequent landing the airplane started to drift to the left. As the pilot tried to steer the airplane back to the center of the runway, it suddenly veered off the left side of the runway and was destroyed, although the pilots were not injured. As the safety officer, Daryl had to try to discover what had caused the accident. As he got into the intricacies of the brakes and steering, it became evident that if the airplane was drifting left and the pilot pushed hard on the brake pedals, with extra force on the right side to correct to the right, the top of the right pedal would hit the bulkhead, causing a loss of right steering and brakes. Full left steering and brakes would be applied instead, which was what caused the airplane to veer off the runway.
