The Lockheed L-100-30 Hercules sustained damage in a landing accident at Dayton, OH. The aircraft experienced separation of the nose landing gear during the landing roll. Investigation showed that the failure was related to the progression of a pre-existing crack on the nose landing gear strut assembly. The problems with the nose landing gear were recognized by the manufacturer who recommended compliance with service bulletin 82-448 that was issued to detect cracks similar to that experienced in this instance. The service bulletin, that was issued in 1979, had not been accomplished on the aircraft.
