World War II-era plane makes emergency landing in surf off of Florida beach

(Thanks to EricY, who says "The pilot was immediately handed a Florida driver's license.")

Looks like Florida Man must have shot it down with his own t-shirt bazooka (using cabbages for ammo no doubt).

Guess they didn't make it to the Bermuda Triangle. With all that saltwater, no way are they doing repairs and flying it off the beach.

Flight 19 returns!

Was the pilot the same age as he was in 1945?

Last heard as the pilot belly in - "I will be Avengered!"

In another video you can see a bunch of people swimming out to the plane.
I figure they're from various, Florida DMVs rushing to get him a valid driver's license.

Thank goodness they responded to the call that the airplane's extended warranty was about to expire
