A single engine, World War II-era airplane made an emergency landing in shallow waters near a Florida beach Saturday.

No injuries were reported in the landing, which happened during the Cocoa Beach Air Show Saturday. Cocoa Beach is about an hour east of Orlando, on Florida’s Atlantic coast.

Several videos showing the TBM Avenger flying low over water filled with people, before finally landing in the water, were posted to social media Saturday.

The air show, which is scheduled to continue Sunday, will continue operations as usual, according to the Palm Beach Post.
