Crews using cranes and flatbed 18-wheelers are removing large sections of the UPS cargo jet that crashed in Birmingham last week, killing two people.

Workers loaded pieces of the charred tail section of the A300 on to a truck Wednesday morning, and a crane was in position near what remained of the cockpit of the aircraft.

The twin-engine jet crashed short of a runway in Birmingham a week ago, killing the pilot and co-pilot.

Preliminary findings by the National Transportation Safety Board have ruled out several mechanical causes for the crash, but investigators haven't determined what happened before the plane hit trees near the runway and slammed into a hill.

Investigators say it could be months before they determine the cause of the crash.
