Navy compensating those affected by Va. jet crash

Navy officials compensating those affected when jet crashed into a Va. Beach apartment complex By The Associated Press

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) ' Navy officials are starting to provide compensation to those affected when a military jet crashed into a Virginia Beach apartment complex.

Navy representatives opened a legal office at the Virginia Beach Law Enforcement Training Academy on Monday for affected residents to drop off forms and pick up their checks.

Initial payments start at $2,300 for an individual resident, with more going to residents with families.

The information center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this week. Residents aren't being permitted back into the apartment complex until the cleanup is complete, but should talk with on-site fire officials about valuables. Residents' towed cars were available for pickup Monday.

Dozens of apartment units were destroyed when the F/A-18D Hornet careened into the Mayfair Mews apartment complex, but no one died.
