MORE than 50 people have reportedly died following a plane crash in southern Russia.
Local emergency services are reporting that all 59 people on board the FlyDubai plane have perished after the Boeing 737-800 went down close to the southern city of Rostov-on-Don near the Ukraine border.
Russian news station RT says flight FZ981 crashed as it attempted to land at the city’s airport as it came into land from the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai.
The aircraft was undergoing a second approach to the runway when it crashed.
“According to preliminary data, the Boeing 738 crashed in poor visibility conditions, some 50-100 meters left of the runway,” a source is reported to have told Russian news agency Interfax.
