I can't tell the aircraft type but I like the Navy blue paint job ... Painted like a Corsair. Glad no issues; I wonder if he got a ticket when he landed next to the police department???

Looked like an RV12 to me.
[edit] upon further review, no it doesn't. Glad the pilot handled it well, no one was injured, and the airframe looks none the worse for it.

Pretty sure it's a Grumman AA1, as discussed on another forum.

No mentioned in the local news about any tickets, fines or any other type of regulatory sanctions, maybe the FAA but IDK. Last I heard the plane was transported back to the airport.

AA1 for sure...canopy and nose gear give it away.

Fun paint job!
