Narrative:
An Air Canada Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner taxied off the side of the taxiway at Vancouver International Airport, Canada, and became stuck in the grass/mud.
The aircraft, C-FVLU, had parked at the gate after a flight from Toronto at 03:16 UTC. The next flight would be AC304 to Montreal, departing at 14:00 UTC.
In between, the aircraft was taxied by a ground crew to another parking spot when the aircraft rolled off the taxiway. The nose landing gear and the left-hand main gear both dug in.
