MOSCOW, March 19. /TASS/. Eyewitnesses saw a powerful flash before the fall of a Boeing 737-800 in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, a video posted on the web shows.
The first video recording of the crash of presumably Boeing 737-800 in Rostov-on-Don was posted on the internet.
The recording shows that right before the fall of the jet, a powerful flash occurred, which was followed by an explosion.
