Causes of Boeing plane crash near Rostov-on-Don killing Kyrgyz woman named

AKIPRESS.COM - Pilot error and possible crew disorientation during bad weather at night led to the fatal 2016 crash of a Flydubai passenger jet in Russia, Russia’s Interstate Aviation Committee said.

The Boeing 737-800 from Dubai, operated by the Dubai-based budget carrier Flydubai, came down in the early hours of March 19, 2016 at Rostov-on-Don airport in southern Russia after aborting a second landing attempt in high winds.

All 62 people on board died, including a flight attendant from Kyrgyzstan Jyldyz Nasirdinova.

“The fatal air accident...occurred during the second go-around, due to an incorrect aircraft configuration and crew piloting (and) the subsequent loss of the (commanding pilot’s) situational awareness at night-time,” the report said.

It said bad weather including treacherous gusts known as wind shear were also factors.

“This resulted in a loss of control of the aircraft and its impact with the ground,” it said.

The Boeing 737 was being flown by the captain at the time of the crash. Both crew were relatively experienced.
