Thank goodness for "Dirty Dancing" and the cheesiest movie line ever: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." Otherwise, Billy (Rob Lowe) shouting "Let's Rock!" would surely take the prize. Try to watch that scene without feeling nauseated.

heres my best shot
If a airplane flies throught clouds in which positive charges have been separated from negitive charges, it may pick up some of the clouds overload of positive charges. Flames may flash along the wings and around the propellor tips. They are awe inspiring bit harmless

I've had it occur by flying from an area of wet snow directly into an area of dry snow. Maybe it was the other way around, but anyway, quickly changing snow consistancies contribute to it I believe. It first appeared on our windshield in small streaks, and then it was soon covering a large section of the windshield. Next it "jumped" to the propeller and illuminated it through the dark night and hard snow. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.
