Just Plane Lucky

Here is what it looks like when a plane gets hit by lightning. (Here is slowed down view.) We wonder what it looks like from the inside?

Top Men would like to calm your nerves by reminding you it's been over 40 years since lightning caused a major plane crash. Today's aircraft (US and European built) are well protected against fuel sparks and electronic failure that might be caused by lightning. Relax and enjoy the view.
