Turkish Airlines Plane Struck By Lightning

Fri Jan 25, 2013 4:53 pm

Pretty spectacular footage from inside the plane and you have to give the passengers a lot of credit for remaining very calm too. The pilot did a great job under the circumstances too!

Most people on twitter and social media commented that "the wing was on fire" even some people on TV. I know we harp on this here on anet but I will always be amazed how uneducated the general public and even TV anchors reporters when it comes to general aviation. We advanced so much with internet,wikipedia etc, knowing little about everything, yet commercial aviation is a free for all...... Rant over 
I was surprised how calm the pax was on this incident, I am Turkish and flew on TK many times, seen many times pax pressing the call FA button complaining about light turbulence
