Newly released video shows Roy Halladay's last moments before his plane went down in the Gulf Tuesday.

WARNING: The following video contains explicit language.




TMZ received footage shot by boaters who reportedly said the ex-MLB star's plane was going from 100 feet in the air down to five feet and then back up again.

Halladay was 40 years old and had a home in Odessa.

According to Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Halladay was flying his Icon A5, a two-person, single engine amphibian plane when the plane went down into the water about a quarter mile west of Ben Pilot Point in New Port Richey.
