Three KLM planes were hit by lightning shortly after taking off from Schiphol on Sunday afternoon. One plane had to return to the Amsterdam airport for inspection, NOS reports.
Flight KL1175 was on its way from Schiphol to Trondheim in Norway when lightning struck it. The plain turned around over the North Sea and flew back to Schiphol to be inspected. The safety of passengers and crew was not in danger, a KLM spokesperson said to the broadcaster.
