That is a first time for me photo. It looks more to me as a painted on image, looking like a carrier landing crash where the landing gear collapsed and the wing buckled. Or it could be a Japanese "Val" or "Nate" that made the impact (fixed landing gear).

The GIF from the thread explains it pretty well.

We may never know if it's real or fake, but at least we can compare it to an F-4 hitting a concrete wall at 480 MPH:

According to the news, the F-4 penetrated the wall only by 2.4 inches. Of course a ship wall is no reinforced concrete, but A WWII fighter plane is much lighter and slower than an F-4, so it seems plausible to me.
