A plane carrying 168 people skidded off a runway in northern Turkey Saturday night, stopping on a muddy slope just above the Black Sea.
None of the passengers or crew members on the Pegasus Airlines flight were hurt as a result of the unexpected detour off the runway at the Trabzon Airport in the city of Trabzon.
Photos of the incident show the commercial plane sitting halfway down a cliff off the runway and above the Black Sea. A government agency is investigating the incident to learn how and why the plane left the runway, according to the Associated Press.
Passenger Fatma Gordu told a local news agency that the plane “swerved all of a sudden.”
“The front of the plane crashed and the back was in the air,” she said, according to the AP. “Everyone panicked.”
