Morane Saulnier MS.894A Rallye Minerva, G-BKBF
During the landing roll-out the nosewheel started to shimmy and then detached from the nose gear. The aircraft came to a halt on its nose gear leg. The nosewheel axle was subsequently found to have failed close to where it meets the nose leg. The causes of the shimmy and axle failure were not established. There were no injuries.
