Plane skids off runway and dangles over a cliff

An airplane on January 14 has skidded off the runway after landing in the Black Sea province of Trabzon, causing panic among passengers aboard, Hurriyet Daily News reported citing Anadolu Agency.

Images from the scene show the aircraft departed the left side of the runway and travelled part of the way down a steep coastal slope, coming to rest a short distance from the sea.

The Boeing 737-800 plane had flown from Ankara to the northeastern city of Trabzon.

One of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, told Turkish state-run news agency Anadolu the crash sparked panic on board the flight.

Pegasus Airlines confirmed in a statement Sunday there were no injuries among the 162 passengers onboard as well as two pilots and four cabin crew after they were evacuated. "There was panic; people shouting, screaming", she said.

The airport was temporarily shut before reopening on Sunday morning.

Trabzon Goerner Yucel Yavuz said the cause of the accident, which resulted in the airport being closed for several hours, was not yet known.
