Lightning strike at Kansas airport caught on video; leaves hole in runway

HUTCHISON, Kansas — Staff at a regional airport in Kansas got a surprise Sunday evening when a lighting strike hit very close to home.

The bolt of lighting struck shortly after 7 pm on the runway apron, a few dozen feet from a private plane.

The moment was captured on security cameras and was posted to Youtube. Officials said the airport is struck by lightning about twice a year.

The strike made a hole in the pavement several feet across.
