Plane skids off runway and dangles over a cliff

Passenger Yuksel Gordu told Turkey's official Anadolu news agency that words weren't enough to describe their fear.

"We tilted to the side, the front was down while the plane's rear was up".

Panic spread through the Boeing 737-800 as it stopped at the edge of the Black Sea - with its nose dangling precariously off a cliff edge.

All 162 passengers and crew on board the aircraft were evacuated safely.

The Pegasus Airlines flight had taken off smoothly from the capital Ankara and landed in Trabzon, but skidded off the runway in the northern airport. However, soon after landing, the plane skidded off the runway.

Trabzon Gov. Yucel Yavuz said that investigators were trying to determine why the plane had left the runway.

The airport, situated in the Turkish province of the same name, was closed for several hours afterwards but has since reopened.
