The plane turned over on landing, and was then righted by members of the public.
The pilot was helped to the shore, the air show authorities said.
Kent 999s tweeted: “People watching the display rushed to help after a plane in the Turbulent Display Team ditched.” A Herne Bay Air Show spokeswoman said members of the public had righted the plane and helped the pilot from the Turbulent display team to shore.
He suffered “minor injuries”, she said. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said: "People watching the show made 999 calls to the UK Coastguard which immediately sent the Coastguard search and rescue helicopter based at Lydd." The Air Accident Investigation Branch has been informed to conduct a probe.
