The video, obtained by TMZ Sports, was shot by nearby witnesses who filmed the ICON A5 aircraft in the air before it came crashing down.

Former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay appeared to be showboating in his airplane moments before the tragic crash that took his life. Stuck among mangroves in about 6 feet of water, the plane likely cant be moved until todays high tide at 4 p.m.

According to Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Halladay was flying his Icon A5, a two-person, single engine amphibian plane when the plane went down into the water about a quarter mile west of Ben Pilot Point in New Port Richey. On Halloween, he posted that flying it low over the water felt like piloting a fighter jet. "That's a recipe for disaster".

Two other people were killed in Maywhile in an ICON A5. Cagri Sever, a new employee who was in the passenger's seat, also was killed. Federal investigators blamed pilot error. The pilot told investigators the plane descended faster than he expected.

Police said they couldn't confirm if there were additional passengers on the plane or say where it was headed.

California-based ICON Aviation issued a statement Tuesday saying, "We have gotten to know Roy and his family in recent months, and he was a great advocate and friend of ours".

Joshua has however denied that he is the one dragging his heels, insisting that Hearn is doing all he can to arrange the fight. We're now making the moves forward.

Halladay was an eight-time All-Star during his 16-year career with the Blue Jays and Phillies.

Almost every memory began with a story about Halladay's legendary work ethic, his workout program and his early morning routine. The 40-year-old became a pilot after he retired from baseball at the end of the 2013 season. The 6-foot-6 right-hander was a three-time 20-game victor who finished 203-105 with a 3.38 ERA.

Halladay won the Cy Young award twice and pitched a no-hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2010.
