Beech 200 Super Kingair, G-BGRE
Following retraction of the landing gear after takeoff, the red gear unsafe warning light remained ON. When attempting to extend the gear again at the end of the flight, the nose landing gear did not fully deploy. When the aircraft landed the nose gear collapsed, causing damage to the aircraft nose and propellers, but no injuries to the occupants. The nose gear drive chain was subsequently found to have failed in overload.
