A Dubai Plane carrying 55 passengers and 7 crew members has crashed in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, early Saturday morning 19th of March 2016.

The flying Boeing 737-800 nosedived and exploded into balls of flames when trying to land in strong winds, killing all 62 passengers.
Associated Press Reports: The flight FZ981 was scheduled to land at 1:20 a.m. Moscow time but missed the runway.

After circling for about two hours, it went down at 3:50 a.m. local time after making a second attempt.
