MOSCOW (AP) — A task force investigating the crash of a FlyDubai jet in southern Russia says an early probe did not find any technical faults in the plane.
The Boeing 737-800 crashed on landing in Russia's Rostov-on-Don early March 19, killing all 62 people on board.
The Inter-State Aviation Committee investigating the crash said in a statement Tuesday that the readout from the plane's flight recorders showed no technical faults in the engine or other elements of the plane. The investigators, however, stopped short of citing a cause of the crash at this stage.
Several planes had trouble landing at the airport due to strong winds at the time of the crash.
