Lightning strikes airplane during landing at England airport

Lightning strikes airplane during landing(NYDAILYNEWS) Lightning like this very rarely strikes twice let alone three times.
A plane was struck three times during a lightning storm Friday at the Birmingham Airport in England, but the flight landed as planned and not one was injured, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The plane was landing during a heavy storm, but the aircraft was not in danger, officials told the newspaper.
After the bang, my initial thought was the engine had blown up. Surprisingly, it wasn’t frightening, it was exciting.
Passenger Tony Everitt, 51, told the newspaper the passengers remained calm during the ordeal.

“It was incredible — there was one massive bang. Only moments before, I’d noticed the dark skies and told a passenger sitting next to me that I was surprised there was no thunder and lightning,” he told the newspaper. ”After the bang, my initial thought was the engine had blown up. Surprisingly, it wasn’t frightening, it was exciting. You are waiting for something else to happen, then you realize nothing has gone wrong.”
