  • Pegasus Trabzon hangs down the cliff

A plane landing in an airport in northern Turkey skid off the runway and almost fell into the Black Sea, clinging from a steep slope with its nose toward the water below.

Private Pegasus Airlines' Boeing 737-800 departed from Ankara late Saturday.

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

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

"There was a smell of fuel inside so we all thought the plane will explode, but thankfully it did not happen", she added.

The airport was shut down as firefighters rushed to the scene and doused the plane in water. All 168 passengers and crew aboard were safely evacuated with only minor injuries reported, but as the sun rose on Sunday, it became clear how close they had come to a far bigger disaster. Yavuz said the cause of the incident was not yet known and the airport was closed until 08:00 a.m. local (05:00 GMT).
