An all things aviation blog

A Turkish Airlines A321 descending into Izmir Turkey was struck by lightning on the right side engine. As expected this caused some damage to the engine which emitted sparks flame. While ordinarily this would be a non-story the presence of passenger with a cell-phone camera captured the incident of film. Or course when they landed the first thing they did was upload it to youtube.

Beyond what you see, AV Herald reports there was only minor damage to the plane. That damage has been repaired and the plane put back into service.

It may not be major, but it makes for must see youtube TV.
