How to jump start a Jumbo, Aussie style Can't Post

Or maybe I should say "Brisbane style"Wink


Real photo taken on Saturday at the Brisbane International Airport during the storms this weekend. Was very glad to hear my Queensland friends are all ok, they were some very scary storms!

*Personally think it's the Aussie Gods venting their displeasure at the *very* late release of The Hobbit over here* EvilLaugh

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

Yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd be very nervous about getting on board after that one. They reckon it took off not long afterwards, either very brave or very stupid LaughEvilAngelic

What luck not to have been on it!

According to AirNZ the lightning actually hit the ground behind the plane, but it's still an amazing shot! Wink

For what it's worth, the weather channel reported that there were over 2000 lightning strikes during the storms and the airport got hit several times Shocked

We've been in and out of Brisbane more than once, but fortunately it was always a lovely sunny day. I wouldn't want to go ANYWHERE, not even Down Under, in weather like that. Unimpressed

or not worried [In reply to] Can't Post

Planes are actually designed for just this event.

My mom & dad were on a plane that was just taking off from the Denver airport in a storm when it was struck with lightning. They said there was an enormous bang and they grabbed each other - Dad said he thought "well, the kids are old enough that they'll be okay" - and then they heard the engines go to maximum thrust, but the plane got up into the air just fine. After a bit the captain came on the intercom and said "well, folks, we were hit by lightning, but everything is okay. Oh, and the drinks on this flight are free."

The way we imagine our lives is the way we are going to go on living our lives.
