RTV APTN via NBC News Channel

A passenger jet carrying 162 people came within metres of plunging into the sea after it skidded off a icy runway as it landed at a Turkish airport.

Official Anadolu Agency showed footage of the efforts to rescue the Boeing 737-800 plane, which became stuck in mud just meters away from the sea, causing panic among the passengers.

The Pegasus Airlines flight descended into chaos when it tried to land at the ice covered Trabzon Airport in Turkey.

"We tilted to the side, the front was down while the plane's rear was up".

The use of advanced materials such as aluminum and high-strength steel led to a total weight reduction of 450 pounds. The 2019 Silverado has grown a bit with its wheelbase growing 3.9 inches and its length being stretched 1.6 inches.

Pegasus said in a statement the aircraft had been successfully evacuated and no injuries were reported. "There was panic; people shouting, screaming", she said.

"We stayed inside the plane for at least 20 minutes waiting for someone to help us", an unnamed passenger told English-language Turkish publication Daily Sabbah.

The local governor, Yucel Yavuz, said an investigation had been launched into the accident.
