I'm having a hard time visualizing how a King Air 90 can strike a prop in landing. Even if the strut were completely compressed would that do it? Maybe the tire was also flattened? Tough ol' bird!!

I agree, leads me to believe the current information is misleading. I would suspect he hit the prop on a taxiway light or some other raised object.
