These images appear to be from late 2011. The spent fuel pool end of unit 4 is partially dismantled yet the upper side corners remain. Those were eventually removed. All images appear to be from a video from NHK broadcasting. (Many thanks to Mary W for finding them). Commentary before each photo.
North East corner of unit 4 circles indicate breaks in the outer building frame. The green vertical line shows where the building begins to angle off vertical.
Without another image from this angle it is unclear if the back of unit 4 is buckling in more or not. Rust has begun appearing on the
weld joints of the vent tower seen behind the building. Image has been enhanced and cropped, please keep watermark in place if used elsewhere.
Back of unit 4, cropped and enhanced. The buckling of the upper side walls can be seen in this back few from
