The wheel of an Air Canada jet went off the runway at Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport today, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada says. 

Rox-Anne D'Aoust from the TSB said a wheel from the left main gear of the Airbus A330 edged off the runway while landing the flight from Frankfurt.

She said the plane — a model that can hold up to 335 passengers — taxied back onto the tarmac and there were no injuries.

D'Aoust said the TSB has deployed a team of investigators who are taking measurements and photographs and checking the plane's data recorder.


  • The Transportation Safety Board originally told CBC News a wheel had fallen off the plane. The agency later clarified that what actually occurred is the plane veered slightly off the runway. Its wheels remained intact.
