A single engine plane ran out of fuel off the coast of Maui, and the pilot deployed the plane's parachute and fell gently into the sea. Watch this incredible footage shot by the U.S. Coast Guard.

The plane is a Cirrus SR-22, and is known as an expensive and high performance plane. If we were guessing, we would say that the pilot that survived the incident unharmed would tell you his favorite feature on the aircraft is the parachute.
