Plane skids off runway in northern Turkey

Panic broke out on a passenger jet when it skidded off the runway at a Turkish airport and plunged down the side of a cliff overlooking the sea.

All 162 passengers and crew on board the aircraft were evacuated safely. However, the images of the plane about to fall off into the Black Sea gives an idea just how miraculous the plane's escape has been.

One of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, panic erupted onboard during the landing. Flights were suspended at Trabzon Airport for several hours after the incident before resuming again Sunday. "I feel like I'm going insane when I think about it".


The local governor, Yucel Yavuz, said an investigation had been launched into the accident.

Other images from Dogan news agency showed smoke emanating from the trapped plane. The front was down while the plane's rear was up.

The aircraft (TC-CPF) had arrived at the Black Sea resort as flight PC8622 from Ankara on 13 January.
