RV-4 pilot puts it down straight ahead

A pilot in Courtenay BC flying an RV-4 suffered an engine failure after takeoff. He landed straight ahead on some tidal flats past the perimeter of the airport. Looks like a landing gear failure may have caused some substantial damage. Hopefully repairable.

Either way, good stuff not turning back.

The airplane in question, C-FUVR in better days:
