Plane Hit By Lightning At Gate

Thu Jun 02, 2016 2:51 am

The link below shows an impressive video capture of a plane being struck by lightning while parked at a gate with the boarding jetway removed. Looks like the bolt hits the top of the tail and exits through the tires as evidenced by some temporary flames. Neat video.

That is nuts! Is there any update on the condition of the plane?
