I'm a bit surprised no one has posted this here so far. Apparently he had engine trouble and took the best coarse  of action to save the airplane. Textbook ditching. I hope the plane can be recovered before the ocean tears it apart.

That was a an amazing feat, and very lucky that no swimmers were caught up in the incident, everyone seemed so calm, though it was probably because it happened so fast.

Thanks for sharing, so fortunate that somebody recorded it . . .

I echo you thoughts about getting it saved before the tides rip it apart  .. . .

Even made the BBC news over here. Very neat ditching and lucky the beach was quite quiet.

Agreed! Very well done. It has been recovered now for rebuild, etc.

Good save, glad no one was inured. It sucks though that they will probably have to tear it apart again from all the salt water getting into everything

No doubt it will be a big job but at least the a/c was saved. :)

That's a sad sight, hope it's not as bad as it looks.

Agreed. It could have been a lot worse though.
