Recommended Posts

Three E/A-18G Growler jets were struck by lightning on June 6 while they conducted operations over southern Japan, officials confirmed this week.

“No personnel were injured during this incident and all aircraft landed safely at Kadena Air Force Base,” Naval Air Forces spokesperson Ensign Bryan Blair said in an email. “Navy aircrew and ground support personnel are trained to respond to these scenarios and followed all procedures in accordance with U.S. Navy instructions.”
