Amazing photo shows lightning striking an airliner flying in a rainbow

Briefly: Stunning photo of a lightning striking an Boeing 777 that seems to be in the middle of a perfect rainbow, taken by German photographer Birk Möbius. The image was captured yesterday from an aerodrome in Taucha, Germany. Check out the zoomed image to see the plane being hit by the lightning.

    Can a statistician somewhere please do the math and tell us the probability of even seeing this let alone photographing it. Holy crap!

      Ummm.... i think the statistician would have a heart attack.

      Not to mention the probability of the individual parts to the image such as the lightning bolt following the curvature of the rainbow and capturing that in an image alone. All of the different pieces together make this a definite once in a lifetime photo, and an amazing one at that.
