The crash of a flydubai Boeing 737 jet in Russia was captured by grainy security video, according to reports.
The crash occurred at 3:50 a.m. on Saturday morning, when the passenger jet circled a southern Russian airport trying to land in bad weather. On the second attempt, the plane came down at the Rostov-on-Don airport, killing all 62 people— 55 passengers and seven crew members—aboard, according to CNN.
Flydubai said that the passengers included 44 Russians, eight Ukrainians, two Indians and one Uzbekistani. Officials say bad weather was likely the reason for the crash, and have opened an investigation that will take about two months.
