Nippon Airline Struck By Lighting In Osaka - AMAZING

Nippon Airline Struck By Lighting In Osaka - AMAZING
Wow! Once in a lifetime for the crew, and photographer.

Entered the nose and exited the tail. Reckon what the peak voltage was??

Never mind the voltage, the peak current was phenominal , the voltage across the plane must have been low since the plane was acting as a conductor. If the plane was a bad conductor (high resistance) it would have melted the plane. The fact that the plane was able to conduct the current saved the day.

Spectacular shot of a Nippon Airline being struck by lightning in Osaka .
Amazing that the aircraft itself and the people and equipment inside can survive such a hit!

Even more amazing that there was someone to film it in real time!!

This is in normal time


This is in slow motion


This is a still photo just on initiation of the bolt.
Notice the ground and air bolt feeder strike at the same time.
