KLM Royal Dutch Airlines was forced to cancel a Dubai-bound flight on 12th July 2011 after technical problems with its Airbus A330-200.

According to a report in the Aviation Herald, the airline was climbing out of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s runway 36L when failure alerts were received for the green hydraulic system and BSCU (brakes and steering control unit).

In response, the crew levelled off at FL060 and returned to Amsterdam’s runway 06 without nose wheel steering around 30 minutes after departure. No leaks were detected by emergency services and the aircraft was eventually towed off the runway.
