Was flying Singapore via Bahrain to UK on a DC10 ...

When on approach to Bahrain ... was an almighty bang and aircraft shook ... We landed and de-planed.

Sitting in the departure lounge all clutching our Transit cards - we could see guys crawling all over the tail engine.

Typical airlines - they tell you nothing ... but it was obvious by the work we could see going on - this was no 5 minute check-over and the bang sort of gave it away !!

People started pressing the desks for answers and transfers to other flights ... and finally we were all transferred to alternative flights ... myself on to one of the last remaining VC10's still doing that route.
