When the flight arrived at Casper, the pilot attempted to lower the landing gear while on approach and the main gear would not extend. The aircraft landed on the nose gear, slid off the runway and impacted terrain. Mechanics were able to determine after the accident that the failure of the landing gear to fully extend appeared to have been due to a leak in a hydraulic line (Cessna part number 228001-13), caused by it rubbing against the throttle cable.
