The DC-6 was misaligned and appeared to be too high on an ILS approach. The pilot corrected this, but the rate of descent increased. The nosegear collapsed when it struck a wall, 12 m short of the runway. The aircraft slid onto the runway and came to rest after 300 m.
PROBABLE CAUSE: Incorrect use of IFR procedures and inadequate maneuvering by the pilot.
