NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Equipment is being moved into place to retrieve the wreckage of a small plane that crashed into Lake Pontchartrain just north of the New Orleans Lakefront Airport.
The crash site is about 1,000 yards west of the airport's north-south runway.
Fire department officials say drivers will be sent down to the plane Tuesday to attach cables and cranes will lift the wreckage out of the water.
A woman survived Saturday night's crash but two men are still missing.
The airport director, Ben Morris, said Monday that the plane hit a rainstorm around the time of the crash. Morris said a couple chartered the plane for an aerial tour of the city.
