WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Three bodies and the cockpit voice recorder have been removed from a Wichita flight training facility that was hit by a small plane this week.  The Wichita Eagle ( ) reports that Wichita Fire Marshal Brad Crisp said the bodies of the people trapped inside a simulator in the building were pulled from the rubble late last night (FRI).  Crisp said the body of pilot Mark Goldstein will probably not be removed from the roof of the building until today (SAT).  A twin-engine Beechcraft King Air 200 crashed into the Flight Safety International Learning Center at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport shortly after takeoff Thursday. Four people died, and five were injured.  National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Peter Knudson also said the cockpit voice recorder was removed earlier yesterday (FRI) evening.
