Navion NAV 4, F-BAVZ
When the aircraft returned to its departure airfield because of an engine oil leak, the nose landing gear leg would not lock down. The pilot performed a successful gear-up landing on the grass. Upon examination, it was found that a fractured hydraulic pipe was responsible for the failure of the leg to lock down.
