MELBOURNE, Fla. – A World War II-era plane taking part in the Cocoa Beach Air Show made an emergency landing in the ocean near Patrick Space Force Base beaches Saturday afternoon.

No one was injured, emergency officials said.  

A video posted to Twitter showed the single-engine TBM Avenger making a "soft" landing in the shallow water south of Cocoa Beach.

In the footage, the plane descends low in a controlled fashion before coming to a skidding halt in the ocean, sending up spray and foam. 

In another video captured by Melanie Schrader of Melbourne, the plane's single propeller can be seen no longer spinning as it glides toward the shallow water. Dozens of people in the water look up as it passes close overhead, and bystanders express shock as they watch the small aircraft make its descent.
