15. Planes Regularly Get Struck By Lightning


Don’t freak out–although this sounds like just about the scariest thing that could ever happen, it’s not really that big of a deal. Most pilots have experienced being struck by lighting either mid-flight or on the ground. Planes are built to withstand the force and if it happens to you, it’ll sound like a big boom and you’ll see a loud flash, but that’s about it. Chances are they’ll never tell you when it happens either because they don’t want to alarm anyone when there is no threat of danger.
