Turkey: Plane on cliff edge after it skids off runway with 162 passengers

A passenger plane skidded of the runway at Turkey’s Trabzon airport on Saturday night and ended up on a cliff edge just meters from the Black Sea.

The Boeing 737-800 from the capital Ankara was carrying 162 passengers when the incident happened around 11:25pm local time on Saturday.

Miraculously, no passengers of crew were hurt and the plane did not enter the water as it is believed the wheels and nose gear got stuck in the mud.

According to reports, the aircraft was unable to successfully decelerate, and overran the runway which was wet from rain.
