DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Divers have recovered the body of a pilot whose small plane crashed into Lake Superior.
    
St. Louis County Rescue Squad Capt. Tom Crossmon says commercial divers with expertise in deep diving recovered the body Monday evening. The divers were assisted by the Superior-Douglas County, Wisconsin dive team.
    
However, Crossmon says crews won't go back to try to recover the plane wreckage until early next week.
    
The single-engine plane crashed shortly after taking off from the Duluth International Airport Saturday.
    
St. Louis County first responders used sonar equipment to locate the plane's wreckage about 140 feet below the water's surface over the weekend. Searchers in boats found a log book in debris about a mile offshore.
    
The pilot's name has not been released.
