    OT-2 TBM Avenger crash lands in the water in Florida.

    Sort video on the internet. Beach was full of people that went out to the plane. No word on how many were aboard & if any injuries.

    Was part of the Cocoa Beach airshow so one soul on board. He's fine. Tough way to start the airshow season but...he may be wet, but he's sleeps at home tonight.

    Man, I saw that. It was really smooth for such a rough ride. Crazy video though. Glad nobody got hurt.

    ...so they floated the TBM with airbags and then towed it to a nearby pier and lifted it out with a crane.
    TBM was in the water for ~8hrs.

    Unfortunately they didn't lift if out with a crane. They drug it out and across the beach doing a LOT of extra damage in the process. Then lifted it onto a trailer.
