Lightning Striking Airliner

Twice, I've been in an airliner hit by lightning. This is what it looked like on a flight from LAX to DEN, the second time. Fortunately, modern jets are designed for this and it is not a hazard.


  1. No, the strike on my United flight looked the same as on the KA flight video.

  2. Ok gotcha. I was on a 727 flying from LAX to LAS and we got struck during monsoon season. That sucker rocked a little. Worst storm flight was again during monsoon season flying WN into PHX in August. Nice flight until we started down and then it was a bucking bronco. Ozone in the air when we landed. Interesting flight.
