Watch Video of Lightning Strike a Delta Plane
It’s pretty shocking.
Imagine you’re sitting in your seat on a plane waiting for a thunderstorm to pass so you can take flight. You look out the window and boom: Lightning just struck a plane just feet away.
That’s exactly what happened for one traveler who witnessed a lightning bolt hit a Delta plane. The person who took the video, Jack Perkins, caught the sight at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International on Tuesday, Consumerist reports.
“While filming the line of planes all stacked up during a ground hold in Atlanta on 8/18/15,” he wrote in the post on YouTube, “I happened to capture this direct lightning strike on a 737.”
