The Navy has recovered the flight incident recorder from Friday's crash and is beginning to move the wing section and parts of the fuselage from Mayfair Mews apartment complex.
The flight incident recorder was on its way to Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River Naval Air Station in Maryland to determine what information could be recovered, a news release from the Navy said. Like a commercial airliner's flight data recorder, it records flight parameters, cautions and advisories for all phases of flight, but does not include cockpit voice communications.
Navy investigators are continuing their work at the crash scene and a flight systems technical expert from Boeing, the F/A-18 aircraft manufacturer, is on site to assist.
Several aircraft components are being moved from the crash scene to Oceana Naval Air Station for detailed examination, but the aircraft's engines will remain at the site for study before being moved, the news release said. The Navy anticipates removing most of the aircraft debris by the end of the week.
