YLW communications officer, Cassie Brannaga, says the plane was a Cessna 172 aircraft and had one person on board.
“The plane went off the runway upon landing. YLW’s aircraft response fire fighting crews responded and there were no injuries,” explains Brannaga.
The runway was closed for a short period and two flights were cancelled with one delayed as a result of the incident.
