The aircraft was landing at Perth Airport but the pilot was unable to extend and lock the nose landing gear (NLG) fully. The NLG collapsed on touchdown and some abrasion damage to the nose of the aircraft was incurred. It is believed that damage to the NLG extension/retraction mechanism caused in a previous heavy landing had probably prevented full travel of the leg into the downlock position.
