Transcript for Birds, Lightning Strike Flights
And now we move on to the multiple air scares overnight. A plane blasted by birds and another one appeared to be struck by lightning. ABC's David Kerley has all the latest at Reagan national airport. Good morning, David. Reporter: Good morning, Amy. The first flight from Seattle to Dallas didn't last very long and you can see why when you take a look at the plane. The nose cone is dented on the a321 jetliner trouble that came after takeoff and the pilot radios in. Looks like we hit some birds on takeoff. We'll need to go back and have the airplane looked at. Reporter: American tells us it may have been two birds or more that that jet actually hit. Now, the nose is made of a softer material because electronics are housed behind it so they wanted to get it checked out. Take a look at this. I want to show you some video. This is slow motion of a lightning strike over west London. The british airlines jet flying through a storm to heathrow, a passenger says they were shot by the loud noise and bright light. The jet did land safely and returned to service. This is a common occurrence, that's true but, Amy, that doesn't mean it isn't scary when you get hit by lightning. Glad everyone is okay. David, thank you.
