In the UK, a video camera captured a rare phenomenon - lightning struck an airplane on the fly. The passengers and crew were not injured, and one of the world's largest airplanes, the Airbus Beluga XL5, continued its flight.
The incident occurred when the plane took off at Hawarden Airport in Flintshire, North Wales. This was reported by Fox35 journalists (scroll to the bottom of the page to see photos and videos).
It is reported that the plane was en route to Hamburg, Germany, when lightning struck the plane. The flash did not affect the Airbus Beluga XL5, so the pilot continued the flight as usual.
According to eyewitnesses on board, they heard the sound of a powerful explosion and saw a bright flash. Residents also reported that after the storm, they experienced problems with their TV signal and network connection.
The moment was recorded by a dashcam in a car parked near the airport. The footage shows that lightning hit the plane, but it continued to move.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL wrote that a rare and eerie phenomenon was recorded in Las Vegas (America) - a cloud in the shape of a "nuclear mushroom". The fact is that there is a nuclear weapons test site near the city, so witnesses of the unusual natural phenomenon were seriously concerned.
