Lightning Strikes Four Hawaiian Air Jetliners

Four Hawaiian Airlines aircraft suffered lightning strikes during yesterday's rain storms. One of their 767-300s, and three 717-200s were struck during the course of the storm cell that hovered over the Hawaiian Islands. Thankfully, no one was injured, but two of the 717-200s suffered minor damage, and were pulled from the line, causing flight delays.

Further details in this Civil Beat article. Mahalo to team member Funbird2006 for sharing the article.
