The way one of the prop blades is bent suggests it ws not going round at impact so possibly a force lob event

I'm struggling to call that a Sea Fury, seeing as it doesn't have a Centaurus in it...😕

N254SF, s/n 37514, is registered as a 1956 Hawker FB60.
Accident Report says, "Left main gear collapsed during landing."

Not engaging the tailwheel castoring lock has caused Sea Furys to end up like that in the past. e.g. Yeovilton 1974.
