If you’re afraid of flying, this footage might scare you from ever even stepping near an airplane again.
A video uploaded to Youtube captured the shocking moment lightning struck an airplane.
Uploaded by user Jack Perkins the footage shows a lightning bolt striking a Delta Airlines plane while it is sitting on the runway at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The video description reads:
“While filming the line of planes all stacked up during a ground hold in Atlanta on 8/18/15 I happened to capture this direct lightning strike on a 737.”
Perkins was on a Minneapolis-bound flight that was delayed given the severely bad weather. He decided to send his wife cell phone video of the storm when he captured this horrifying moment.
It is still unclear whether anyone was on the plane when the lightning hit.
