Cleanup continues at RJ Asset Recovery after a twin-engine plane crashed in its parking lot in Fort Lauderdale Friday, killing three people.
“A lot of property damage,” said Terry Knowles, the owner of RJ Asset Recovery. “Just trying to get things cleaned up so we can get back to work.”
Knowles, who has lost both business and personal items, is hoping to get the parking lot cleaned so he can get his trucks in and out safely.
"My boat, my hunting buggy, my dooly, my trailer, my camper,” said Knowles as he made the list of his losses. “As far as businesses and vehicles, somewhere around $300,000.”
The staff continues to look through the burned skeletons of vehicles, and found seatbelts and the steering handlebars from the plane.
Kim Waller, whose husband Steven lost his life when piloting the plane, is also demanding answers on the cause of the accident.
“I blame the plane, the owner and the mechanics. Whoever operated it and worked on that plane,” Waller said over the weekend.
But the owner of the plane, MAS Inc. of Fort Lauderdale, did not provide any answers or comments when NBC 6 went to its office on Monday.
The National Transportation Safety Board is expected to determine why the plane went down.
