The landing gear was selected down during the downwind leg of the circuit, and the gear down lights were illuminated. The aircraft touched down normally, but as soon as the nosewheel contacted the runway, the gear warning horn sounded and the nose-gear retracted. The aircraft slid to a halt on the centre-line of the runway. Inspection confirmed that the landing gear system was serviceable. However, the cause of the gear collapse was not positively determined.
