COFFEE? TEA? HOW ABOUT A MILLION VOLTS?

Uncategorized

So you’ve just taken off.  You’re settled back in your seat to enjoy the flight and then ZAP!!
 
From Linkfilter comes this link to images of an airliner being hit by lightning while in flight. My pilot friend likens the sound of a lightning strike like having someone firing a shotgun right beside your ear.  Bet this got the passengers’ hearts pounding.

  1. I’ve been on a flight that was struck by lightning. It was WAY scary. To me, it sounded like a bomb going off. This was pre-9/11 so the fear wasn’t quite as great, however the pilot did come on and indicate that it’s not that uncommmon and it doesn’t really hurt anything. He followed that up with “Free drinks for all”.
