Aircraft and lightning


Lightning struck the plane of the airline "Victory"

In preparing for landing the plane was struck by lightning

The passenger liner of the Pobeda airline operated the Kazan-Sochi flight. When a few minutes were left before landing, and this is only about 30-35 kilometers of flight, a passenger lightning strikes the passenger aircraft.

The crew landed safely. There were no casualties. When looking at the aircraft, the technicians did not find any significant damage, and did not reveal any problems.

However, the company decided not to risk it. The plane went to the airport without passengers. They were given another board that brought them to Moscow.
