The restored WW2 plane's engine cut out during an air show at Florida over the weekend.
It's owned by a private aviation museum, which announced:
We have had several questions regarding the museum's TBM Avenger and her mishap during Cocoa Beach Airshow. The pilot performed the safest ditch maneuver possible, and landed the plane just offshore from Patrick Space Force Base. He was taken to the hospital after walking away from the incident, and he has been released with no injuries.
Well done that man.
