Everyone aboard were killed when a plane with 62 people crashed when trying to land in bad weather in Russia on Friday night.
The accident occurred when the aircraft from the company Flydubai for the second time tried to land at the airport in the city of Rostov-on-Don in southwest Russia.
The Boeing 737-machine missed the runway, crashed and disintegrated. A huge fireball could be seen at the accident site, and debris were scattered over a large area.
55 passengers and a crew of seven were on board the plane. The Russian commission that will investigate the incident, believe the cause may have been human or technical failure.
– At the moment, we’ll focus on two main theories: An error made the pilot when the weather worsened, or a technical failure, a member of the committee, Oksana Kovrizhanaja,  said to the Interfax news agency.
