Authorities have recovered the body of the pilot of a small helicopter that crashed into a Virginia apartment building and killed a resident, the National Transportation Safety Board said Monday. Investigators are still working to identify the pilot of the Robinson R44, said NTSB Air Safety Investigator Doug Brazy. The aircraft is registered to a Henry E. Schwarz of Alexandria, Virginia, according to Federal Aviation Administration Records. A woman who answered the phone at Schwarz's home said he was not there. Only one person was on board the plane Sunday afternoon, Brazy said. The helicopter took off from the Williamsburg-Jamestown Airport about a 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the crash site.
