I had it happen once on a flight from CGK into SIN on an SIA 777. Just as we came into land, and I think the wheels made contact, the engines suddenly roared and back up we went, much to my surprise!

Fairly quickly the Captain came on and said very calmly that a strong tailwind had blown up as we were landing that was too strong for that type of aircraft to land in, so we would have to go around.

Luckily I was in Raffles Class so the guy I was sitting next to and I called for a drink to calm our nerves...
