The young woman who worked as a beautician has died when a personal plane she was flying in struck a high-voltage cable, with her body being so badly burned that her father was only able to identify her by her jewellery.
Burcu Saglam, 22, had reportedly taken the ill-fated flight to cheer herself up after a series of job rejections.
The pilot, Hakan Koksal, 54, had taken off from Pamukova in Turkey, in the afternoon on December 1, in the small propeller plane. But minutes into the flight, when flying at an altitude of 1,200 metres, communication was suddenly lost.
The mangled wreckage of the aircraft was soon found in an empty lot after workers at a nearby natural gas plant informed authorities about an object which had plunged from the sky.
One of the aircraft's occupants is believed to have died when the plane caught fire after its wing clipped an overhead power line at the Ovaakca Natural Gas Cycle Power Plant – with the harrowing moment caught on camera.
The other is believed to have been ejected from the aircraft to their death, said Bursa Mayor Alinur Aktas in the wake of the accident.
Local media are now reporting that Ms Saglam had called the pilot, whom she had met previously, following a series of unsuccessful job interviews on the morning of the flight morning. The 22-year-old reportedly asked if she could come with him on a flight to cheer herself up.
Hours after the accident, authorities had called the young woman's family to inform them that one of the two bodies found might be hers.
The family was shocked, as she had told them she was leaving home for job interviews but had not mentioned anything about a flight. Her devastated father, Mehmet, went to the morgue where he identified his daughter by her necklace.
What caused the plane to fly into the 380,000-volt power line is still under investigation, but local media are now reporting that weather conditions were adverse at the time, with heavy fog.
But that stands in stark contrast to the incredible views Ms Saglam had captured and posted to social media from the cockpit of the light aircraft moments before the crash.
Eerily, she had presciently captioned one image "Byee".
The young woman, who had once run a hair salon with her partner, is survived by her parents, two older sisters, and a brother.
