Plane splits in three after skidding off Istanbul runway

Plane splits in three after skidding off Istanbul runway”

An airplane skidded off the runway and broke apart while landing at Istanbul's Sabiha Gokcen airport, according to CNN Turk.

No-one died in the incident, Transport Minister Mehmet Cahit Turhan said. Apparent footage from the scene shows the aircraft broken into two pieces with flames emitting from its fuselage.

The plane belonging to Pegagus airlines arrived from the city of Izmir, private NTV television reported.

The ministry says the accident was the result of a 'rough landing'.

Live footage from the crash site shows rescue crews surrounding the now-wrecked fuselage of the Pegasus Airlines aircraft.

Passengers were led off the plane but officials were working to free some still stuck on board, officials said.

Masses of people appear to be shining torches over the plane, seemingly in an attempt to check for anyone left in the fuselage, surrounded by flashing lights and blaring sirens.

Several firefighters and health workers were sent to the scene at Istanbul's second largest airport, state news agency Anadolu reported.

NTV said Sabiha Gokcen was shut down in the aftermath of the crash.
