Summary

At the end of the landing roll the pilot noticed that the aircraft was leaning to the left, and thought that the tyre had deflated. The lean increased and the aircraft then rolled forward onto its nose with the propeller striking the ground. It was found that the nose gear leg had broken from its support assembly and collapsed. Airworthiness Directive AD/PL-12/1 amdt 2 requires a visual inspection of the support assembly every 100 hours time in service. The aircraft had flown about 60 hours since the last inspection.
