Lightning strikes of planes are fairly common. I’ve been on a handful of flights over the years which have been struck by lightning, and it’s usually not a big deal (though it can be loud). However, all of those lightning strikes were mid-air, so you couldn’t actually see them.
However, YouTube user Jack Perkins captured an incredible video of a Delta 737 being struck by lightning while on the taxiway at Atlanta Airport. Here’s the video 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.
And here’s the video:
Here’s a screen grab from the video which shows the lightning strike happening (look at the tires, in particular):
That looks straight out of The Twilight Zone, if you ask me!
