Lucky Escape! Plane With 162 Passengers Stops Few Yards From The Black Sea After Crashing

A fully-booked passenger plane came within yards of plunging into the Black Sea when it skidded off an icy runway while trying to land, The Sun UK reported.

Luckily, the jet's 162 passengers escaped death as the wheels of their Pegasus Airlines flight dug into the freezing mud at Trabzon Airport - leaving it dangling precariously off a coastal cliff. Another photo...

Turkish officials said the cause of the accident was not yet known, they had to close the airport overnight to conduct an investigation.
