The three-hour flight barely got into the air before something went wrong.

Thankfully, the emergency landing was a success and no one was injured from the accident.

According to CTV, a plane departing from Vancouver International Airport had to make an emergency landing back at YVR Airport on the afternoon of Sunday, June 23.

The plane was allegedly heading to Alaska in a three-hour flight.

The incident took place at around 2:30 PM.

The flight departed on time and it travelled towards the destination of Anchorage, before turning around mid-flight.

A spokesperson with Air Canada told CTV that the flight had returned to Vancouver after an engine shutdown.

At the time, there were 112 people on board.

The spokesperson claimed the aircrafts are designed to fly on one engine and that pilots are trained for situations like the one that took place Sunday.
