A China Airlines Boeing 747 took an unexpected turn into the mud at Vancouver International Airport on Tuesday night.
China Airlines Flight 32, flying into Vancouver from Taipei, Taiwan, took a wide turn while taxiing on the runway after landing at around 6:10 p.m., causing the jet to drive into the soft, wet ground.
A YVR media representative said there were no injuries in the incident, and that there was no effect on airport operations.
All of the passengers were off-loaded safely, and were transported to the airport terminal by bus around 9:30 p.m.
The plane was later towed back to the airport around 11:30 p.m.
The returning flight has been delayed until Wednesday afternoon, with no impact on any other operations.
