Lightning Strikes Airplane In Flight

Lightning strikes airplane in flight
Lightning struck WOW Air's TF-GAY airbus as it took to the skies today, and an alert Icelander captured the moment on video.

As can be seen, a bolt of lightning struck the plane early in its flight. A plane being struck by lightning may be uncommon enough as it is, but in Iceland, the occasion is even more uncommon - lightning is a very rare sight in this country, as the weather seldom creates the conditions that make it happen.

Amazingly, the plane was undamaged, and continued on its merry way from Keflavík to Paris without incident.
