I know planes get hit by lightning all the time but this one seemed to be a cause for concern.

I got an email about this incident a couple of days ago but only had a chance to look in this forum today.

A SAA South African Airways Airbus A340-300, registration ZS-SXA performing flight SA-280 from Johannesburg (South Africa) to Perth,WA (Australia), was on approach to Perth when the crew reported a lightning strike causing a number of abnormal indications including tyre pressure.


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
