Damaged Blackburn Ripon after landing

Here we see a Blackburn Ripon that has landed on a carrier flight deck with its right wheel missing. The arrestor hock appears to have engaged succesfully, and at least one of the deck crew is heading towards the aircraft. The same aircraft was photographed while coming in to land.
