Footage from on board crashed plane at Trabzon Airport in Turkey

New footage shows the moments after an aeroplane skidded down a cliff in northern Turkey ending its journey just metres from the waters of the Black Sea.

The Pegasus Airlines jet was stopped only by its wheels getting stuck in the mud.

After the plane ground to a halt, passengers pulled out their phones to capture the chaos after the crash. Some are clearly confused about what happened and how to escape.

The crash sparked panic on board the flight, one of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, told Turkish state-run news agency Anadolu.

"We tilted to the side, the front was down while the plane's rear was up. There was panic; people shouting, screaming," she said. The flight was evacuated safely and all 162 passengers escaped unharmed.
