INCIDENT Air Canada Boeing 787-9 stuck in the mud off the taxiway in Vancouver


An Air Canada Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner stuck in the mud after it taxied off the side of the taxiway at Vancouver International Airport, Canada, on Sunday.

The aircraft was being prepared for Air Canada flight AC304 to Montreal departing at 14:00, having arrived at Vancouver from Toronto at 03:16 UTC.

The incident took place when the aircraft was being taxied to another parking stand by a ground crew. The nose gear, as well as the right-hand main gear, dug in the mud.

However, the aircraft has been tugged out at the moment. The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with registration C-FVLU was delivered to Air Canada back in February 2018 and is currently 2.9 years old.
