Crews are returning to a remote section of the Great Dismal Swamp on Monday to recover the bodies of four Florida residents killed in a plane crash.
A Virginia State Police spokesperson says crews brought an excavator and a pump to the crash site on Sunday to remove debris and water near the wreckage.
Officials say the twin-propeller Cessna 340 left Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in Florida on Thursday morning. It was scheduled to arrive four hours later at Hampton Roads Executive Airport. The Norfolk air traffic control tower's last radar contact was shortly before noon Thursday over the swamp.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
