Black box data from the flydubai operated 737-800 which crashed on Saturday (March 19) killing all 62 people on board has been recovered by Russian investigators.

The data was recovered from a damaged cockpit voice recorder from the aircraft, which came down at Rostov-on-Don airport in Russia after a second attempt to land in strong winds on a flight from Dubai.

A spokesman from Russia’s Interstate Aviation Committee, which is investigating the crash, told Reuters that the decoding of the two black boxes may take between “several weeks and several months.”

Russian media has speculated that the two causes under consideration for the incident are technical failure or a pilot error, but flydubai stated it is too early to determine what led to the crash.
