This is crazy,
A WN flight from MHT to MCO was struck by lightning shortly after departing from the airport.
The flight itself, WN2515, departed from the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport at 5:42pm EDT bound for the Orlando International Airport in Orlando, FL. The aircraft departed the Runway uneventful, and was then struck by lightning.
The aircraft continued, instead diverting to Hartford’s Bradley International Airport (KBDL) Later.
I think this is crazy. I was working outside when the storm approached. Lightning actually struck not too far from our Store, and since I am a cart pusher, I was told to go inside. It was intense. In Concord, hail actually fell (Pellets, not baseball sized).
I am amazed to see a flight originating from my hometown get struck by lightning. Stuff like this is very unusual at our airport.
