Watch This! Lightning Strikes Airplane! [VIDEO]

You don’t see this every day…and you sure hope it doesn’t happen to you. This is one of those HUGE Airbus A380 planes landing in London.

This is some video from ABC News that some guy on the ground was shooting as he was watching planes land at Heathrow Airport in London.

Every year in the U.S. more than a half million people are on planes that are struck by lightning. A person is actually 560 times more likely to be in a lightning strike while on an aircraft than on the ground.

It is estimated that most commercial planes are hit by lightning at least once a year and in fact planes themselves often cause the lightning strikes that hit them, when flying through storms. As a jet flies through storm clouds it disturbs the atmosphere, causing lightning to form.
