Lightning strike destroys glider

In 1999, a fiberglass glider suffered a tremendous lightning strike. The aircraft rapidly broke into multiple pieces and fell to earth. The pilots parachuted to the ground and lived to tell the tale. The following video re-enacts the flights and talks with the pilots. Also in the video is Cobham’s Stephen Haigh to discuss lightning phenomenon.
