Man on plane films spectacular lighting storm

A PASSENGER on board a domestic flight bound for Brisbane has filmed the spectacular but unsettling moment lightning started striking the ground around the aircraft as it went to land.

Australia’s largest storm chasing community, Higgins Storm Chasing uploaded the video to Facebook on Tuesday night.

It was shot by a male passenger after his plane had descended beneath a band of storm clouds over the city on Monday afternoon.


Filmed through a window overlooking one of the aircraft’s engines, the vision is like no other, giving a fresh look into a storm’s fury.

The fierce storm went on and cut power to thousands of homes and businesses across the city.
