WWII-Era Plane From Airshow Makes Emergency Water Landing At Florida Beach


Incredible video from Cocoa Beach, Florida during an Air Show.

Video shows the TBM Avenger performing in the air when it experienced mechanical issue that forced a water landing.

The pilot managed to bring the plane down just offshore.

Video shows a number of beachgoers jumping in the water after the landing to assist in the rescue of anyone on the plane.

The pilot was the only one on-board and was not hurt.

Airshow organizers said in the Facebook post, “The TBM Avenger performing in the warbird parade had a mechanical issue and the pilot was able to bring the plane down close to the shore. Rescue personnel were immediately on scene and the pilot is okay.”
