Turkish plane stops meters from sea after skidding runway

A passenger jet skidded off the runway at Trabzon Airport on Sunday morning, coming to a stop just meters before the Black Sea.

Footage shows the tailplane of a Pegasus Airlines Boeing 737-800, which had departed from the capital, Ankara late on Saturday, rising from above the cliff edge surrounded by emergency services.

All 162 passengers and crew on board were evacuated safely, according to a local government spokesperson.
