Welp, here's another reason to hate being stuck on the tarmac.
An insane new video shows what appears to be a Delta Air Lines passenger plane getting struck by lightning on Tuesday while it was grounded during a storm -- because, apparently, Zeus hates delays as much as you do. In his description for the video, YouTube user Jack Perkins said he captured the lightning strike while "filming the line of planes all stacked up during a ground hold in Atlanta" on August 18th. It's unclear if the plane was damaged by the bolt, but we reached out to Delta to find out more.
Update - 1:30pm ET
A Delta spokesperson provided the following statement regarding the lightning strike:
"Amateur video shows Delta flight 67 on August 18 from Atlanta to Las Vegas incurring a lightning strike while in the takeoff queue. As with any event involving aircraft, Delta is doing a thorough investigation of the circumstances around this flight as safety is always Delta’s top priority.
