Rabat – A FlyDubai plane from Dubai (United Arab Emirates) crashed on the night of Friday to Saturday at the airport of Rostov-on-Don, in southern Russia, in conditions of poor visibility, resulting in the death of 62 people, according to AFP.

The airline has confirmed the crash of the Boeing 737-800 at 3:42 local (0:42 GMT) on Saturday, announcing the death of its 55 passengers of flight FZ981: 33 women, 18 men and four children. Among them, “44 Russians, 8 Ukrainians, two Indians and an Uzbek,” the company said in a statement posted on Facebook.

The seven crew members, whose nationality was not revealed, were also killed in the crash, said the Russian investigation committee, which added that it had found a black box and continue research to find the second.

The plane “crashed while trying to make a second landing attempt due to bad weather conditions,” said in a statement the Ministry of Emergency Situations.

“It grazed the runway with one of its wings and began to disintegrate,” it said. Fragments of the plane were scattered over a distance of one kilometer and a half, according to local media.
