Rumble / Strange WeatherMany of us have a fear when it comes to flying on a plane. Turbulence makes a lot of people nervous, so a thunderstorm is the last thing you want to see while flying in a plane. The dark clouds surround you and the large gusts of winds cause the plane ride to be very bumpy. This is never a fun experience. Good thing the plane flies above most clouds for the majority of the ride.

Ground footage of an airplane getting struck by a powerful lightening bolt was taken while it was preparing for a landing. From the ground, this looks very frightening, imagine actually being inside the plane. Luckily, there will only be a loud sound when lightening hits a plane. Nothing too extreme should happen as the plane has lightening protection engineered into the air craft. Even though it doesn't look like it, being in a plane is probably safer than being outside on the ground!

Do you think this is real footage or do you think there was some editing involved? Have you ever been in this experience before? Let us know in the comment section down below!
