    Huh... I am under the impression that the wings of a plane have lightning rods (or some other system to redirect electrical charges) and so the lightning would not hit the ground. It ensures that the passengers would not get electrocuted.

    I doubt that image is real since the lightning hits the ground...

    slinky0 this image is probably real. People in planes are safe because they are made of aluminum. The lightning runs along the outside of the plane and then to the ground. It is called the "skin effect". Go look up nikola tesla and tesla coils. If the plane tried to contain the lightning, which is millions of watts of electricity it would probably explode.

    Yeah, electricity runs on the outer surface. The hollow middle is unaffected. That`s why cars are safe to be in. I wonder if the passengers noticed the flash lol.
