    Three main versions of the FlyDubai Boeing-737-800 crash have been revealed by the Russian Investigative Committee.

    The Russian Investigative Committee is considering three main versions of the FlyDubai plane crash in Rostov-on-Don: technical fault, severe weather conditions or human error, according to the Investigative Committee's chief Vladimir Markin.

    "Different versions of the incident are being investigated, including crew error, technical failure, bad weather and other factors," Markin said.

    Earlier, Senior Assistant to the Head of the Southern Transport Investigations Oksana Kovrizhnykh said that there were two main versions of the FlyDubai plane crash.

    "We are considering two main reasons for the crash in Rostov-on-Don at the moment. Piloting error due to worsening weather conditions or technical failure," said Kovrizhnykh.

    There were 45 Russian citizens on board, according to the senior assistant.

    A passenger FlyDubai Boeing-737-800 en route from Dubai to Russia’s Rostov-on-Don crashed at the city's airport after missing the runway amid poor visibility and bad weather conditions. No one out of the 7 crew members and the 55 passengers survived the crash.

      to the great nation of russia --

      please do NOT permit ANY american or anyone related to any american policy maker to handle even a SINGLE speck of dust ...and they should NEVER be allowed to ''investigate" or evne observe without CLOSE supervision by russian authorities.

      they can observe all they want as the russian authorities -- and whoever they designate -- ONLY do the investigation and actual handling of every piece of evidence, debris, anything conceivably related...all the americans should be permitted with is to OBSERVE. and they can say what they want -- which american/western mouths will say whatever they want anyway (the wholed world knows that already)

      but it is not a matter of perception they create -- it is a matter of NOT POLLUTING or ''disappearing" , any speck of dust or record -- ONCE the americans ''handle" them or get anywhere near them within their reach.

      let them claim boeing rights whatever they want -- they should NOT BE PERMITTED to have access to material, physical or record keeping - except only to show them what the russians consider as evidence and relevant material. and just as observers -- NOT AS INVESTIGATORS.

      they are going to POLLUTE IT AND CORRUPT IT. mark my word.
