    [article] video in article

    A SKY watcher has filmed the frightening moment that a jet appeared to fly straight into a bolt of lighting over Brisbane Airport.
    The startling video was filmed during the Sunday night electrical storm, which caused delays for a number of flights into Brisbane as well as injuring two people on the Sunshine Coast.

    The footage was posted on YouTube and identified as an Emirates A380-800 plane coming into land.

    The footage shows the plane crossing the sky as a sudden bolt of pink electricity emerges.

    "Now did you get that on camera?" the photographer's companion asks, stunned by the sight.

    "Send it to The Courier-Mail and they'll pay you a thousand bucks," he jokes.

    A spokesman for Brisbane Airport said significant delays affected a number of services as multiple storms passed through the area.

    :rolleyes:

    Planes are hit by lightning all the time. Also, they don't ever try to "dodge" it at all.
