    One of the planes performing in the warbird parade at Patrick Air Force Base in Brevard County, Fla. had a mechanical issue, forcing the pilot to bring the aircraft down on Saturday. The pilot was able to land in the ocean close to the shore on Cocoa Beach while beachgoers looked on. Rescue personnel responded immediately and neither the pilot nor anyone on the ground were injured.

    The pilot was in a TBM Avenger performing in the warbird parade when the issue happened, according to a Facebook post from the event. According to the event’s website, the TBM Avenger started flying again on Jan. 11, 2020, after restoration.

    Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration said the incident happened around 1:20 p.m. In response to the landing, the FAA said it will investigate along with the National Transportation Safety Board. FAA officials said the pilot was the only one in the aircraft.
