Panic spread through the Boeing 737-800 as it stopped at the edge of the Black Sea - with its nose dangling precariously off a cliff edge.
Images from the scene show the aircraft departed the left side of the runway and travelled part of the way down a steep coastal slope, coming to rest a short distance from the sea. All 168 passengers and crew aboard were safely evacuated with only minor injuries reported, but as the sun rose on Sunday, it became clear how close they had come to a far bigger disaster.
Other images from Dogan news agency showed smoke emanating from the trapped plane.

The United Center had an extra buzz when the Bulls took the court for their game against the Pistons on Saturday night. Chicago then survived four late shot attempts by Detroit, including a missed layup by Drummond with 38 seconds left.
One of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, said panic erupted onboard as the plane skidded out of control.
He added that the cause of the accident was still unknown.
Flights resumed at the Trabzon International Airport on Sunday, after being temporarily suspended following the incident.
