Witnesses told Florida Today they heard the BM Avenger engine sputtering down the beach and knew something was off as the plane slowly descended.

The pilot was not injured and refused medical treatment.
The air show released a statement saying the plane had a mechanical issue and that rescue personnel were standing by during the emergency landing.
