Moment a commercial plane was struck by lightning

ALEX HEINKE reports.

A passenger has captured dramatic footage of the moment a Delta Airlines plane was struck by lightning.

The man was filming a fierce electrical storm at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia when the 737 was hit.


He told the BBC his plane had been delayed due to the bad weather and he wanted to send his wife a video to show her why he was late.

There were around 111 passengers and six crew members on the flight at the time of the strike but no one was injured.
