Found this interesting, and when issues arise, down in the islands, things a little more laid back,

A KLM Airbus A330-200, registration PH-AOF performing flight KL-729 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Sint Maarten (Sint Maarten), landed on Sint Maarten's runway 10 and slowed to taxi speed. While turning around to backtrack the runway to the apron the aircraft experienced a malfunction of the nose gear steering system disabling the aircraft on the runway. The aircraft needed to be towed to the apron.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Sint Maarten about 19 hours after landing.
