    Work crews remove one of the Boeing 737 fuselages that plunged into the Clark Fork River east of Superior, Mont., on Monday.

MISSOULA, Mont. — Crews have removed the second of three commercial airplane bodies from a river embankment in western Montana following a train derailment.
Montana Rail Link spokeswoman Lynda Frost says the second newly manufactured Boeing 737 fuselage was winched up Monday without any problems.
She says the third is expected to be removed from the Clark Fork River embankment near Alberton by the end of Tuesday.
Nineteen train cars derailed on Thursday, spilling three fuselages into the river and three more near the tracks. Frost says the fuselages and their flatbed cars weigh a combined 70 tons each.
The fuselages and other airplane parts were being transported from a manufacturing plant in Wichita, Kansas, to Boeing facilities in Washington state.
Railway officials are investigating the cause of the derailment.
