Air NZ plane weathers lightning strike

An Air New Zealand plane that had just taken off from Auckland was struck by lightning around 8pm last night.

The plane was not thought to be damaged, but turned back from its Wellington destination to land back in Auckland as a precaution.

Air New Zealand said the plane was undergoing engineering checks in Auckland today.
