Lightning strike forces airline bound for Alicante to make 'precautionary' landing at next available terminal
26 July 2013 @ 02:59

A RYANAIR flight bound for Alicante from Edinburgh had to land at Glasgow Prestwick airport just minutes after take-off due to having been struck by lightning, sources from the low-cost airline confirm.

The flight had just left the Scottish capital at 18.15hrs BST (19.15hrs Spanish time) during a storm when it was hit by a bolt of lightning and forced to touch down at the nearest airport.

Aviation engineers inspected the craft fully and gave it the green light to fly shortly afterwards.

The pilot then proceeded to Alicante, where the rest of the flight went without a hitch and landed with a slight delay at its Costa Blanca destination.
