A Boeing 747 aircraft operated by China Airlines ventured off the path and into a grassy area at Vancouver International Airport on Tuesday evening.

YVR spokesperson Lara Gerrits told Vancity Buzz that Flight 32 from Taipei landed safely at 6:25 p.m., but as it was taxiing to the terminal gate part of the aircraft took a wrong turn into the grass and the wheels became stuck.

There were no injuries as a result of the incident and airport operations were not disrupted.

The aircraft was later towed back to the terminal. An outbound flight, scheduled for last night on the same aircraft, has been delayed to later today.
