Lightning Strikes Plane, Sends Shivers Down Your Spine

This flight was rough before it even left the ground.

A passenger aboard a plane in Atlanta captured lightning striking another aircraft on the runway earlier this week at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.

According to the YouTube description, “While filming the line of planes all stacked up during a ground hold in Atlanta on 8/18/15 I happened to capture this direct lightning strike on a 737.”

It’s unclear if anyone was on the plane when the lightning hit.
