Lightning strikes Croatia Airlines flight to Dubrovnik

By  Jan 15, 2018

A Croatia Airlines flight from Frankfurt to Dubrovnik was struck by a bolt of lightning at around 9.00pm last night. Just before landing at Dubrovnik Airport the Airbus A319 was struck by lightning but managed to land without any problems.

No major damage was reported, however from the photo it is clear to see where the lightning struck the nose of the Croatia Airline plane.

Overnight mechanics reportedly checked the plane over and it took off at 6.40 am on a flight to Zagreb.
