A Croatia Airlines plane flying from Dubrovnik to Zagreb was struck by lightning on Thursday evening, and reports suggest that passengers were a little in shock although the airline clarified that there was no danger to people.

 

"Such situations are already taken into account when designing airplanes, given that airplanes come to areas with lightning," said Croatia Airlines spokesman Davor Janušić and explained that planes are constructed according to the Faraday cage principle.

 

The Croatia Airlines plane landed at the Zagreb airport without any problems, confirmed Janušić and said that it was inspected in accordance with the procedure.
