Circumstances:
The airplane departed Ankara-Esenboğa Airport at 2233LT bound for Trabzon. Following an uneventful flight, the crew started the approach by night to the runway 11 and the landing was completed in heavy rain falls at 2325LT. After touchdown at a speed of 143 knots, the airplane rolled for about 2,400 meters then veered off runway to the left, went through a grassy area then down a steep slope. It lost its right engine and came to rest few meters from the sea. All 168 occupants were evacuated safely. The right engine was sheared off and fell into the sea. According to first report, it is believed something went wrong with the right engine after touchdown (unintentional forward thrust and asymmetrical thrust).
