So we have two different places for the ditching - Patowalker's image shows the ditching as taking place opposite the West Cocoa Beach Causeway, the link to Dan Gryder's video that Sooty25 provided (I watched a snatch chancing cauliflower ears, perhaps Dan earned a few more cents from me clicking the link?) shows it as happening pretty much where I said it did, just a half mile up the coast from Patrick's threshold. Who is right?
Third pic down in the first link below shows the aircraft being craned ashore - note the palm trees and the stop sign. You will also see the same trees and sign in the Google Maps link.

Right next to Patrick AFB, just up from the runway...
The point is there's a lot of misinformation out there which then gets misrepresented as fact - I don't believe Gryder is doing anything useful - as somebody else said "Accident Investigation by YouTube is bad for everyone."
My earlier point about keeping a short stretch of beach clear under Patrick's approach if indeed it was the designated emergency airport is just something I think might be considered - with the hindsight of Shoreham and also the Spitfire crash at Rouen where an emergency runway was obstructed by spectators.
