Passenger jet goes off runway

(MENAFN) Carrying 168 people, a Pegasus Airlines flight came within meters of plunging into the Black Sea after it skidded off an icy runway as it landed at a Turkish airport, but no passengers or crew were hurt, Turkish media reported on Sunday.

The incident took place at Trabzon airport in northeast Turkey on Saturday night.

"We tilted to the side. The front was down while the plane's rear was up. There was panic, people shouting, screaming," passenger Fatma Gordu was quoted as saying to BBC.
