14 January 2018

As you can see in the photos, the damage is pretty extensive to the plane - but, miraculously, there were no fatalities and all passengers were successfully and safely evacuated.

A Pegasus Airlines aircraft is pictured after it skidded off the runway at Trabzon airport by the Black Sea in Trabzon, Turkey, January 14, 2018.

Flight PC8622's wheels became stuck in icy mud as it landed at Trabzon Airport.

It teetered right on the edge of the cliff hanging over the Black Sea as passengers cried out in fear. The plane, belonging to private low-priced carrier Pegasus, had arrived from the capital Ankara.

But on landing at Trabzon Airport just under 90 minutes later the plane left the runway.

The airport was shut down as firefighters rushed to the scene and doused the plane in water.

An airplane has skidded off the runway after landing in the Turkish province of Trabzon, causing panic among the passengers.

He added that the cause of the accident was still unknown.
