On November 13, 1993, at about 1615 eastern standard time, a Scott Longeze, N83TS, experimental homebuilt airplane, registered to Talmadge Scott, operating as a 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight, crashed on landing. The airplane sustained substantial damage. The private pilot sustained minor injuries. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed. The flight originated from Twelve Oaks Airport about 1 hour 40 minutes before the accident.

The pilot stated to the NTSB investigator-in-charge that on landing, the nosewheel collapsed, and the airplane nosed over.

Examination of the nose gear by the FAA and the registered owner revealed the nose gear down relay on the landing gear retraction/extension assembly had failed for undetermined reasons.
