Plane skids off runaway in northern Turkey, no injuries

The plane then tore through grass verges before digging into mud and coming to a terrifying stop - on a cliff edge.

The aircraft, which had taken off from Ankara and was operated by Turkish low-priced carrier Pegasus Airlines, was landing at Trabzon Airport on Turkey's Black Sea coast when the hair-raising accident happened on Saturday night.

The Pegasus Airlines flight descended into chaos when it tried to land at the ice covered Trabzon Airport in Turkey.

Trabzon Governor Yucel Yavuz said that all of the passengers and crew on board had escaped uninjured.

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

A Pegasus airplane has skidded off the runway on Sunday after landing in the Turkish province of Trabzon, causing panic among the passengers.

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

The cause of the incident was not known and an investigation is under way.
