2 years ago i was arriving back in GLA
from Greece on a JMC B757-200 and the weather was terrible, so my home airport EDI
was closed and all traffic was diverted to GLA
. When we were on final approach, the captain announced that we had to turn away from teh airport and start the approach again as a BA
A320 took our landing slot. So as we were on our second approach, a large flash of lighting came down and struck the plane just 2 or 3 seats in front.
People in GLA
were listening to our aircraft on a radio and the First Officer notified that we'd been hit (dunno why, wouldn't do much good) and all of the relatives in the terminal waiting were freaking out a bit.
Well as you can tell i did survive it or else i wouldn't be writing this message.
