The plane which made an emergency landing at Culdrose Air Day is being taken for repairs.
Smoke started billowing from the Sea Fury in front of thousands of spectators back in July.
The pilot managed to get it down - before one of the wheels collapsed sending it spinning onto the grass.
Mike Nixon is from the Fly Navy Heritage Trust - trying to get the 1940s aircraft back in the air. He said: "Thanks to the skill of the pilot we think the damage is much less than it otherwise would have been to the underside.
"There's some burn marks from the runway and so forth but as long as the undercarriage hasn't been damaged and put under too much stress then it's eminently flyable."
The problems with the flight brought Air Day to an early close in July, with emergency crews quickly on the scene.
However, the pilot was able to walk away from the plane unaided.
An investigation is now underway into what caused the problems onboard, including experts from the navy and insurers.
Mike Nixon said it was too early to tell what had gone wrong: "Really it would be just speculation. There is a full scale investigation going on.
"Everyone is taking an interest in this because it is an unusual aeroplane. It is an original and the engine is one of not that many around. We want to find out what went wrong."
The plane is now being transported by road for engineers to study the plane and start work on repairs.
