MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. The flight recorders from the Boeing 737-800, which crashed in Rostov-on-Don, are damaged badly, though fit for decrypting, which, however, will require additional time, the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) told TASS on Sunday.
"In order to begin decrypting of the flight recorders, we have to complete necessary preparations, as the recorders are damaged badly," IAC’s representative said. "We shall finalize those works today."
Thus, the Committee does not give forecasts when the decrypting may begin and be over.
"It is tough to say now," IAC said.
On March 19, at 3:42 a.m. Moscow time (0:42 a.m. UTC), FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800 crashed at Rostov-on-Don’s airport during a second attempt to land in complicated weather conditions (strong side wind and rain). The plane served regular Flight FZ 981 from Dubai. The passenger jet with capacity for 189 passengers had 62 people aboard, including the crew. None has survived.
The investigation looks into several leads: a pilot error, a technical malfunction, bad weather conditions, and others.
