Two previously unpublished CCTV videos allegedly showing the Flydubai FZ981 crash in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don that killed all 62 people on board have been posted on YouTube. Both show the Boeing-738 inexplicably dropping out of the sky.

The black-and-white videos taken during the night of the crash show the catastrophe from a new angle and distance. The first one shows the plane literally falling from the skies almost vertically, with a massive fireball upon impact.

The second clip posted by local DONDAY channel shows what looks like a plane trying to land. All of a sudden the aircraft goes up and disappears in the clouds. Moments later the bright spot is seen going down fast and an explosion follows.

On March 19, Flydubai’s Boeing 737-800 jet flight FZ981 was en route from Dubai to Russia’s Rostov-on-Don. The aircraft crashed early in the morning during its second landing approach amid poor weather conditions. The plane disintegrated, killing all 55 passengers and 7 crew members onboard.
