Just found this on IG! 😱😱😱
This was taken by one of the best plane spotters I know. @istanbulspotter
ANZ doesn’t fly to IST in the first place so this is a photoshop (And not a very good one)
Unless he/she was somewhere else
Unless u r joking, look at the window reflections. An Airport Terminal
Yeah, it’s just a fake lightning bolt. (Edit: maybe not fake)
Idk about this one. The reflection could be anything
Could be just another part of the photoshop to trick people.
I just checked. They said it was at Brisbane Airport
And Air New Zealand isn’t flying the 747-400 anymore. Is there a date for the photo?
You can take a burst shot, right? And u might catch it, right? Or make a slow motion vid and take a screenshot of the moment, right? Just saying🙂✈️
It’s a photoshopped photo from a while ago. Why would they fly 747’s to Brisbane?
Maybe it diverted from another airport.
But the lightning bolt has lit up the raindrops on the window… Seems more realistic the longer you look at it.
Hmm, seems quite a coincidence to me.
Yeah you don’t say
Found something else @JFKPlaneSpotter101. The tail would be more of an attraction than the elevator for the lightning.
That doesn’t mean the rest of the aircraft isn’t attracted. Like when one time a guy got shocked by lightning even though there were 50+ foot trees around him (I believe I saw this on the Science Channel)
Air NZ said that it hit something behind the plane. https://flightaware.com/squawks/view/1/7_days/popular/30340/Lightning_Strike_Hits_Air_New_Zealand_747_at_Brisbane_PHOTO?media_id=62978;media=comment;vote_type=up;tk=
It was flying from Brisbane to Fiji.
