Seen today in drone footage you almost can't believe. A Boeing 737 passenger jet stuck halfway down a cliff's edge in Turkey, nose down, dangling there a few feet above the sea. The pegasus airlines plane had skidded off the runway, and over that cliff after landing at the airport in trabzon. Inside a baby crying. Cellphone video showing 168 passengers and crew evacuating quickly, slogging up the muddy slopes to safety. Many passengers spoke of panic in the plane during the incident. Overnight fire crews pumped water on the plane. A few plumes of smoke could be seen at the site. Today crews began the difficult task of lifting the jet back up the slope.
