Flight Fright: Lightning strikes plane, engine catches fire

Passengers on a Turkish airlines flight probably experienced some of the scariest moments of their lives, when their plane was struck mid-air by lightning — and one of the passengers caught the whole thing on camera.

This happened in Izmir, 350 miles south of the country’s capital Istanbul.

The lightning strike caused the engine to catch fire. Still, the pilot was able to land safely.
