Passenger Plane Skids Off Turkish Coastal Runway

A Pegasus Airlines flight skidded off the runway of a Turkish coastal airport and ended up halfway down a steep slope into the Black Sea, but no passengers or crew were hurt, Turkish media reported on Sunday.
The incident happened on Saturday night at Trabzon airport in northeast Turkey. Pictures from the site showed the plane’s nose close to the water’s edge, Reuters reported.
Pegasus Airlines said in a statement that the Boeing 737-800 aircraft, flying from Ankara to Trabzon, “had a runway excursion incident” as it landed but the 162 passengers, two pilots and four cabin crew, were unhurt.
Trabzon’s governor, Yucel Yavuz, said all 162 passengers and crew on board were evacuated from the plane. Yavuz said the cause of the accident was not yet known and the airport was closed until 8 a.m. local time (0500 GMT).
