Flydubai Flight FZ-981 Crash: Monument to Commemorate Victims Unveiled in Russia
One year after Flydubai flight FZ-981 crashed at Rostov-on-Don airport, Russia, a monument to commemorate the victims was unveiled near the airport.
The plane was coming from Dubai on March 19th, 2016, when it crashed amid bad weather conditions, claiming the lives of 62 people.
The monument, named Interrupted Flight, has been designed by Rostov sculptor Anatolly Sknarin. It shows the names of the victims on a vertical stone slab.
Russian transport minister Maxim Sokolov was quoted as saying, “A year has passed from that horrible tragedy. Today, we open a memorial. Let me express condolences to the relatives of the victims.”
