Runway excursion, Air Canada, Airbus A330-343, C-GFAF, Montréal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, Montréal, Quebec, 07 October 2014: TU3-5/14-0155E-PDF

"On 07 October 2014, the Air Canada Airbus 330-343 (registration C-GFAF, serial number 0277), operating as flight number ACA875, left the Frankfurt-Rhein/Main International Airport in Germany, bound for Montréal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, Quebec. During the daylight approach to Runway 24R in the presence of a thunderstorm just north of the airport, the crew was advised that the lighting on Runway 24R was out of service. This was the only runway in operation. During final approach, meteorological conditions changed from visual meteorological conditions to instrument meteorological conditions. On short final, during the approach to Runway 24R, using the instrument landing system, the aircraft entered a heavy rain shower and encountered a right crosswind exceeding 20 knots. The aircraft deviated from its path before touching down to the left of the runway centreline at 1234 Eastern Daylight Time. Following the landing, the left rear tire of the left main landing gear left the hard surface of the runway and travelled approximately 600 feet before regaining the runway. The aircraft returned to the centreline before taxiing to the terminal gate, where the passengers exited. Three runway edge lights were damaged. The aircraft was not damaged and there were no injuries"--Summary, title page.
