Narrative:
The pilot reported hearing an unusual noise as the nose wheel was lowered during the landing sequence. As a precaution, he increased back-pressure on the control column to keep the nose wheel off the ground for as long as possible during the landing roll. The nose gear subsequently collapsed, resulting in substantial damage to the propeller and engine cowling. An subsequent inspection of the failed nose gear assembly revealed no pre-existing defect.
