On 20 December 2012 and Air Berlin Airbus A330-200 suffered a catastrophic engine failure shortly after departing Phuket Airport, Thailand, requiring it to perform an emergency return to Phuket. This engine failure is reported to have damaged hydraulic systems which reduced the capability of the fly by wire systems and meant that there was no anti-skid available for the landing. The aircraft landed very heavily and the wheel brakes caught fire. As a result of this terrifying incident, a number of passengers suffered physical and psychological injuries.
