The plane was taking part in a promotion for the American Airpower Museum, which celebrates the 75th anniversary of the P-47 aircraft.
Scuba divers recovered the body of the 56-year-old pilot, William Gordon, about three hours after the crash.
Mr Gordon was a veteran air show pilot and an "aerobatic competency evaluator" who certified performers in acrobatics, with more than 25 years of experience, according to promotional material for the show.
It made kind of a U-turn, and then there was a stream of smoke coming from it.
It was tilting down toward the water. I thought they were doing some sort of trick. I didn't realize it at first, but it was a plane crash.
The plane was one of three taking part in the celebrations. The other two returned to the airport and landed safely.
An investigation has been launched into the causes of the crash.
