Canada B788 at Tokyo on Jul 30th 2018, turns off runway into dead end
Last Update: August 1, 2018 / 19:08:28 GMT/Zulu time
The runway needed to be closed and remained closed for more than 6.5 hours.
Japan's Ministry of Transport reported the aircraft became stuck prior to the entry into taxiway B7 at the southern end of the runway, where it entered a taxiway under construction in error.
AIP Japan's current aerodrome charts do not show the taxiway under construction nor do the NOTAMs include any information about that taxiway under construction possibly being confused with B7.
On Aug 1st 2018 the Canadian TSB reported: "Following the landing on Runway 16L at RJAA, the flight crew were given instructions to exit to the right when able, and proceeded to what they thought was Taxiway B7. Subsequently, the flight crew stopped the aircraft as there appeared to be dirt and grass ahead, and advised ATC that they were on a taxiway under construction. The aircraft came to a stop onto a hard surface, a short distance after exiting the runway. Reportedly, there were no markings indicating that the taxiway was closed or under construction. Maintenance personnel attended to the aircraft to get it towed to the gate."
