any background info on this event? did the plane go down?
No idea, sorry!
It was emailed to me.
a plane being hit my lighting, wow
I doubt anything happened to the plane although the pilot probably changed his call sign to brown (as in hello brown your through) lightning stirkes on planes are very common filming them isn't of course!
I reckon it survied because the lighning still goes to ground if you watch, it just happens to hit the plane on its way.. Good bit of filming though, I bet everyones hair on the flight stood up! lol.. bet they shit themselves, as I would if I'd have happened to be on it!
And don't forget the incredible amount of noise lightning makes... *BANGGG!*
I was worried enough when I could just see lightning about 2000 ft below me last time I was in a , let alone fly thru the fukker !
Thats a wicked pic , the poor sods looking at the elevation they had only just taken off too. What a way to start a holiday and they probably had a couple of hours flight ahead of them. I bet there was a big purge on the inflight drinks.:shock:
