WATCH 1st footage of plane that crash-landed at Turkish airport
Footage showing a plane which overran the runway at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen Airport has been shared on social media and shows the aircraft in flames.

The video shows the plane broken in half, and appears to have been recorded from inside a moving vehicle or another plane at the airport.

Other footage gives an even grimmer perspective, as it is clear that the Pegasus Airlines aircraft actually split into three pieces when it overshot the runway and came to a stop on a grassy area nearby.

While Turkish officials initially said that the crash resulted in zero fatalities and only 21 people injured, the figures have been revised several times since the accident. According to the latest data provided by the Health Ministry, 157 people were injured, while one person succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash.
