On final approach to Runway 23 in a D-18 Beech at Mansfield Lama Airport, Ohio, we received this inquiry from the control tower: 

Tower:  Beech XXXXX please confirm nose wheel extension?

Beech 18: After looking at each other in surprise and much laughing, we responded: "Mansfield Tower, N8504, we don't have one!"
