OMG Delta plane struck by lightening in Atlanta
The downpour would not ease up Tuesday, and Delta Air Lines flight No. 67 did not have leeway to withdraw Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Jack Perkins, who was “shooting the line of planes all stacked up amid a ground hold,” turned on his camera.
Around 17 seconds into the recording, an electrical jolt struck the Boeing 737-900ER.
Perkins, who was not on the influenced air ship, transferred the alarming minute on YouTube — a minute that had been seen more than 36,000 times by Thursday evening.
Around 111 clients and six team individuals were on the flight at the season of the lightning strike, Delta representative Morgan Durrant said in a messaged explanation. Nobody was harmed, he said.
“Airplane outline permits lightning jolts to be securely diverted,” Durrant said. “Fuselage structure and modern evaluation protection goes about as [a] super-conductive lightning bar that rechannels lightning around and far from clients and team and out into the ground by means of the arrival apparatus.”
Still, Delta is examining “the circumstances around this flight,” he said.
The airplane made it to its last destination: Las Vegas
