AAIB investigation to Piper PA-28RT-201T Turbo Cherokee Arrow IV, G-BHFJ
Nose landing gear leg failed to extend fully, Wycombe Air Park, 14 July 2014.
The aircraft’s nose landing gear leg failed to extend fully, following which a successful landing was made that damaged the aircraft’s nose and propeller. A flexible fuel drain hose had become disconnected at its fitting at the lower engine cowl and the loose hose had restricted the nose landing gear leg sufficiently to prevent its full extension.
