Spain’s plane hit by by lightning bolt on landing in Madrid this morning [Graphic]

Spain’s World Cup nightmare flirted with actual, and not simply sporting tragedy this morning, on arrival back in Madrid.

As La Roja’s plane was landing into Barajas Airport, a lightning bolt struck the aircraft, which thankfully didn’t cause any major turbulence, and they were able to land without problems.

Fair to imagine the Spain contingent are just about ready to forget the whole experience after this shocking scare.
