All Aircraft Were In Flight. No Injuries Were Reported
Four commercial airliners were reportedly struck by lightning during a bout of severe weather in Houston Friday. The FAA reports that no one on board any of the aircraft was injured by the strikes.
Two of the airplanes were apparently struck just after departure from Bush Intercontinental Airport. The others were hit on approach to Houston Hobby.
The airplanes belonged to four different airlines. Both of the departing airliners which were hit were able to return to Bush Intercontinental and land safely, according to television station KWTX.
The lightning strikes all happened within a two hour period as thunderstorms moved through the area.
