Summary

Summary

Normal landing gear down indications were obtained before landing. When the nosewheel was lowered late in the landing roll, the nosewheel leg collapsed, allowing the nose and propeller blades to contact the ground. The aft rod end fitting on the nose gear actuating rod had failed. The rod was apparently of outdated design. New rods are constructed of thicker gauge metal. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
