Operating as TK 720 from Istanbul, "Izmir" veered off a rapid exit taxiway and got stuck in the mud while exiting runway 27 on arrival around 4:15 AM today. The evacuation slide has been deployed on the opposite side. The incident happened close to the main runway, which will remain shut temporarily till the aircraft is cleared and relocated. All 97 persons on board are safe. Apologies for the picture quality. Many thanks to Sunandan Subramaniam for the edit.
