Thunderstorm at night

Thunderstorm at night

Somewhere over Eastern-Europe with thunderstorms all over the place.

Fortunally in these parts of the world we can easily fly over the clouds at a comfortable 41.000ft / 12,5km altitude and enjoy the immense and breathtaking beauty nature offers us.

Every couple of seconds there is a huge burst of energy released in the form of a lightningbolt somewhere beneath and around us. Fortunally, chances of getting hit by lightning on top of the cloud is small, so the passengers can enjoy their inflight movie, coffee or other drinks while we dim the instrumentlights a little bit more and enjoy nature without saying a word.

This is the best job in the world.
