14 Января 2018

A passenger jet slid off the runway and became stuck in mud after landing at an worldwide airport in Turkey's Black Sea province of Trabzon late Saturday.

Pegasus said in a statement the aircraft had been successfully evacuated and no injuries were reported.

Dramatic images show the white aircraft dangling precariously on the steep, muddy cliff face against the backdrop of the clear waters of the Black Sea.

The private carrier Pegasus Airlines' Boeing 737-800 departed from Ankara late on January 13.

Investigators have yet to determine the circumstances of the excursion but images of the jet indicate that it suffered substantial damage during the accident.

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

The cause of the incident was not known but an investigation is under way, the governor said.

One of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, panic erupted onboard during the landing.

State-run Anadolu news agency said there was panic on board as the plane went out of control.
