A scary picture has surfaced the Internet in which a lightning bolt hit near an airplane. The incident took place at the Christchurch airport, New Zealand.
As per the reports, the picture of the lightning bolt strike near Emirates Airbus A 380 was captured by a pilot who was working at the airport on November 20.
It was a narrow escape for the passengers who were sitting in that Emirates’ plane.
The hair-raising of the moment was shared by CGH Aviation on Facebook with a caption, “The view out our window onto the tarmac today! The Emirates plane waiting for the storm to pass..”
Reportedly, the Emirates flight had just landed and before getting unloaded the thunder strike near it.
In an interview with stuff.co.nz, Daniel Currie, the pilot who had clicked the scariest picture said, "It quite often stops the odd meeting at work as it comes by, but today with the storm and the timing of the lightning, it made for an awesome show."
“The planes were all waiting to unload but couldn't because of the weather so [we] were just waiting on the tarmac for clearance and there were multiple lightning strikes ... Everyone was fine nothing caught fire but looks like a close call. [It] made for an awesome photo,” Billie Hammett, who was also working on that day saw the frightening moment said in an interview.
