No, it actually happened in 1979 or thereabouts, in the Gulf of Mexico right off Pensacola Florida. It was a National jet, but I can't remember if it was the 727 or DC10, the only thing I remember is it had an engine on the tail. As I remember, it was in sort of a marsh. I think most passengers got out safely. I'll have to look it up on the accident websites and let you know if I find the details.
