Narrative:
Flight 8V2601 taxied off the runway when making a 180-degree turn on the turning pad after landing on runway 02 at Doncaster Sheffield Airport (EGCN). A spokesman for Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) said:

"We can confirm that the runway at DSA is temporarily closed due to a 747 freight aircraft requiring operational support.There were no passengers on board at the time of the incident, and there were no injuries to colleagues or crew. The freight on board the aircraft may be offloaded to aid recovery.

The fire team attended to assess the situation, have confirmed that the aircraft is safe, and have now returned to the station. This will cause disruption to flights arriving and departing from DSA this afternoon.

An inbound flight from Poznan will divert to Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) and the outbound passengers to Poznan will be provided with transport to meet their flight from LBA."
