Jet Crash Cleanup Continues In Virginia

One man who has had to move into a hotel, after a Navy fighter jet crashed into his apartment building in Virginia Beach says it hasn't soured him on the military, which he still says has been a good neighbor.

Jeff Swoope says of the nearby naval air station, "If the jets really bother you, you don't have to live there."

Dozens of apartment units were destroyed in Friday's crash, but nobody was killed. And local and Navy officials say that's a miracle.

Meanwhile, cleanup continues at the crash site. Crews removed debris and sifted through the wreckage, trying to find the jet's flight recorder. The Navy hopes it will provide answers to what caused the crash.
