Pegasus pilot arrested yesterday after the passenger plane he was flying skidded off the runway at an Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen airport earlier this month, according to judicial sources.

Prosecutors in the İstanbul decided to arrest Mahmut Arslan (Pilot) for causing death and injury by negligence after three people died among the 177 passengers and six crew members.

On Feb. 5, Pegasus Airlines flight PC2193 was arriving from Turkey's Aegean province of Izmir at Sabiha Gokcen International Airport when it skidded off the runway while landing.

TV footage showed the nose of the plane almost completely separated from the rest of the fuselage, which burst into flames following the crash.

After skidding off the runway, the plane drifted around 164 feet.
