This CCTV footage shows a bright flash across the sky followed by what appears to be an explosion on the ground. That was the moment a passenger plane crash-landed at an airport in southern Russia, killing dozens. The FlyDubai Boeing 737 flight from Dubai crashed on its second landing attempt in Rostov-on-Don with about 61 people aboard. All 55 passengers and seven crew aboard were killed. Flight tracking website FlightRadar24 shows the aircraft aborting its initial attempt to land at the airport, then circling for almost two hours before the crash during its second landing attempt. Flying in poor visibility conditions, the plane hit the ground between 50-100m away from the runway.
