The crashed airplane, a Pegasus Airlines Boeing 737-800 on Flight 2193 from Izmir to Istanbul, arrived at the Sabiha Gokcen[b] airport at 6:19 p.m. on Wednesday.

The plane was carrying 177 passengers and six crew.

According to International Flight Network, weather conditions were poor with heavy rains and a powerful tailwind that may have caused the plane to touch down too late.

The Boeing overshot the runway and had trouble slowing down on the rain slicked surface.

Flight data indicates that the Boeing's last recorded speed was dangerously fast at 117 km per hour.

Speaking at a news conference, Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya said the plane was dragged 50 meters before falling down a 30-meter slope, the New York Times reports.

The jet broke into three pieces and social media footage apparently shows passengers fleeing the wreckage after the crash.

The New York Times reports that three people were killed and 157 were hospitalized.
