The FlyDubai Boeing-737-800 en route from Dubai to Rostov-on-Don crashed at the city's airport at around 3:40 AM Moscow time (00:40 AM GMT) Saturday after missing the runway amid poor visibility and bad weather conditions. All 62 people on board including 55 passengers and seven crew members died in the accident.
"Emergencies Ministry plane delivered two black boxes to Moscow. They are sent to the IAC directly from the airport,"- said an EMERCOM representative.
Currently, the Russian Investigative Committee is considering three main versions of the crash: poor weather conditions, technical fault and human error.
According to the Investigative Committee, the crew failed to land the plane during the first attempt and spent over two hours flying around the airport hoping to find a good moment for another takedown. Finally, the plane went for the second landing attempt during which it crashed.
