Turkish woman shares eerie selfie before fatal plane crash

A young Turkish beautician chillingly posted a selfie video with a caption bidding farewell moments before the small plane she was flying in crashed to the ground, killing her and the pilot.

Burcu Saglam, 22, and Hakan Köksal, the 54-year-old president of the Yunuseli Sports Aviation Association, had taken off from Pamukova, Turkey, on the ill-fated trip Thursday afternoon, according to Central European News.

Saglam was all smiles as she posted footage and pictures of herself from the cockpit on Instagram with the caption, “Byee.”

The single-engine jet they were traveling in plunged to the ground when its wing hit an overhead power line at the Ovaakca Natural Gas Cycle Power Plant in Osmangazi after losing communication about 20 minutes after takeoff, according to the report.

One of the passengers died when the plane caught on fire from the impact, and the other was ejected to their death, local officials said.

The plunging aircraft’s impact was caught in dramatic footage and wreckage of the aircraft was found in a parking lot near the power plant. No one on the ground was injured, according to the report.

The fatal journey was said to be a “training run” for the 22-year-old, who had previously run a salon with her partner.
