MOSCOW (Sputnik) —On Saturday, FlyDubai Boeing 737-800 plane coming from Dubai crashed while attempting landing amid poor weather conditions at the Rostov-on-Don Airport (ROV). All people on board, including 55 passengers and seven crew members, died in the crash.
"During his visit to the crash site, Alexander Bastrykin inspected the work of a team of criminal investigators… and made several orders, including handing the criminal case over to the Investigative Committee’s department dealing with particularly important cases for further investigation," Markin's statement read.
The Investigative Committee has been working to determine the cause of the crash together with Moscow-based Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC or MAK). They are expected to be joined by foreign experts from US state transportation agencies, the United Arab Emirates and France.
