VIRGINIA BEACH -- The Navy expects to have recovered all wreckage from that crashed F/A-18D Hornet by the end of the week. 

The pieces will be kept at NAS Oceana for the investigation.

Meantime, the Navy and city continue to reach out to residents of Mayfair Mews who lost so much in Friday's crash.

A representative from the state Office of Vital Records is helping those people replace important documents for events that occurred in Virginia -- like birth certificates, marriage licenses, death certificates and divorce certificates.

Residents also will get information about contacting other states for documents.

Also on Tuesday, Congressman Scott Rigell toured the site of the crash.

"There's a high degree of coordination between Navy officials and the city of Virginia Beach.  Our focus now, of course, is helping the displaced families," said Rigell who commended crews on their job thus far.  "We all need to understand this is a long-term process," he added.
