Hope he survives it.

Im trying to figure out the sort of issue he was dealing with. Even those old warbirds have a bit of a glide ratio and clearly he was able to make altitude enough to reach a golf course for a landing. Seems the landing gear failed in some way given the huge divots hes gouged out along the lawn. And the engine / prop area is smashed off resting down from the rest of the fuselage. Maybe he stalled it on final and then dived right into the ground?

And here he is on ATC making the emergency call

Seems like he lost his Millennium Falcon mojo he sounds disturbed "...engine failure immediate return" ATC says "Ryan (make of aircraft) 178 cleared to land runway 21" then he says "goto three" meaning he wants a different runway to what ATC allocated. ATC confirm "Ryan 178 runway three cleared to land". Clearly though runway 3 isnt the gold course :) Just about the only time you get to call the shots with ATC is an emergency like this.

Poor bloke, we can laugh cos hes OK

Apparently he hit a tree shortly after take off so that explains the hard hit on the engine/gearbox/prop sub assembly
