The nose gear centralizing cam was damaged when the aircraft was towed up a steep incline. When the oleo extended after takeoff, the nosewheel adopted an off-set position and remained in that position after the gear was extended for landing. On landing the aircraft slewed violently to the left as the nosewheel touched the runway surface. The aircraft left the runway, the gear collapsed, and the aircraft collided with meteorological observation equipment adjacent to the runway.
