    The flight recorders from the FlyDubai FZ981 flight which crashed in Russia on its way from Dubai are in good condition, a spokeswoman for Russia's Investigative Committee said Saturday.

    ROSTOV-ON-DON (Sputnik) — Earlier on Saturday, the FlyDubai Boeing 737-800 plane coming from Dubai with 55 passengers and seven crew members on board crashed while attempting landing amid poor weather conditions at the Rostov-on-Don Airport (ROV).

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

    "The boxes are in good condition," Oksana Kovrizhnaya told reporters.

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