Deadline For Donations To Jet Crash Victims Set At June 8

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Virginia Beach is setting a June 8 deadline for anyone who wants to donate money to those affected by a Navy jet crash.

The F/A-18D Hornet crashed April 6 just after taking off from Naval Air Station Oceana. No one was killed, but the impact or fire from the crash destroyed dozens of apartments.

The Navy demolished 27 units, removed contaminated soil and cleaned the 37 units that were undamaged.

City officials said Wednesday that they’ve collected more than $4,300 for the Mayfair Mews Relief Fund.

The city says shortly after June 8, the money will be disbursed to the residents to assist them in their resettlement efforts.
