The city of Atlanta, home of the largest airport in the world, has been recently hit by a severe thunderstorm. Departures and landings were suspended for several minutes and passengers had to wait inside the planes or the airport. One of them, Jack Perkins, wanted to share with his wife the video of the storm when he captured the moment a plane, waiting on the tarmac, was hit by lightning bolt.

Don’t worry! As explained Popular Science, the aluminum hull of an aircraft is highly conductive but lightning bolt do not have any impact on airplanes, although it’s spectacular!
