This was a pretty awesome video, but one of the commentary that I just saw, says that the plane landed safely in Las Vegas. Why did they even take off? I know that aircraft are designed to take strikes, but wouldn't you want to have the aircraft checked out after a strike? It looks like there was a small fire on the mains during the strike. Would the pilots even know they got hit?

I believe the earth shattering bang, the pfd and lights flickering,the plane shaking and other pilots sitting right next to them would have alerted them that they got hit.

Look at the Arc off the landing gear, wondering if it fried some break sensors? Or are they designed to take it?

According to Delta, they are designed to take it exactly that way... http://news.delta.com/statement-lightning-strike-video

The video, according to YouTube, was shot by a man who identified himself as Jack Perkins.

Interesting video. Back in the day when I was an engineer on the 727, we were taking off out of IAH to MIA and were hit by lightening on the nose going through 14,000 feet maneuvering between cells. First there was a green haze, a loud crack and a flash. We did not loose any power or systems and continued on to MIA without any incident. It definitely will get your attention.

Pax & Crew are protected by a lightening strike by electically conductive material. Being hit by lightening hits the outer surface of the frame. The outerskin of most aircraft is primarily Aluminum. It may leave a small burn were it enters and leaves. Airplanes are more complex with electonic equipment. Wnen you're hit...which I have several times, it's a powerful "Boom". It's all about "static wick". Totally airworthy.

Striking just where Boeing likes to put batteries on 787s......
