Update: Three people confirmed dead with many injured after plane skids off runway and breaks into pieces in Istanbul

Published

A Pegasus Airlines plane broke apart after skidding off the runway at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen International Airport on Wednesday evening, killing three people and injuring scores of other passengers, Turkey’s health minister, Fahrettin Koca, said.

The low cost carrier plane carried 177 passengers and was traveling from Izmir when it landed in difficult conditions in Istanbul as the city was lashed by strong winds and heavy rains, according to the city’s governor, Ali Yerlikaya.

For hours after the crash, Turkish officials said there had been no fatalities, even as footage from the scene showed the plane had sustained what appeared to be catastrophic damage. It was separated into three pieces, with the nose almost completely detached from the rest of the fuselage and flipped over. Early footage of the crash showed what appeared to be a fire near the rear of the plane.

After skidding off the runway, the plane “drifted” approximately 165 feet and then fell approximately 100 feet off an incline, said Yerlikaya, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency.

Security analyst, Col. Festus Aboagye (RTD) has warned the government to stop using soldiers as security. 

Speaking in an interview on TV3, he said its not the role of the military being so mandatory to provide security to certain VVIP’s. According to him, in the law, whether in practice or in the law, its not the role of the military to drive civilians and not even ministers but may be the head of state and the vice. 

For him, there might be a situation of emergencies like civil war and conflict in a part of the country but in the normal democratic governance that we find ourselves, military are not bodyguards for parliamentarians, ministers and lawyers. Please watch the video below:
