    FlyDubai Boeing Crashes in Russia (67)

    The investigation into the deadly plane crash in southern Russia will take about two months, a spokeswoman for Russia's Investigative Committee said Saturday.

    ROSTOV-ON-DON (Sputnik) —  FlyDubai Boeing 737-800 plane coming from Dubai crashed at about 03:50 Moscow time (00:50 GMT) on Saturday while attempting landing amid poor weather conditions at the Rostov-on-Don Airport (ROV). All 62 people on board, 55 passengers and seven crew members, died in the crash.

    "The terms of the investigations are set by [Russia's] criminal code — two months. But they could be prolonged because of the inspections' duration," Oksana Kovrizhnaya told reporters.

    Investigators earlier found the crashed plane's first and second flight data recorders, and its first voice recorder.

    The Investigative Committee presented three versions of the cause of the tragedy: a technical fault, severe weather conditions and human error.
