Local news outlet Mwebantu shared the post of a passenger who was onboard.
“Just landed in Lusaka on a flight from Livingstone,” wrote Savannabel.
“Our plane, in a wild thunderstorm, was struck by lightning just after we started our descent. We dropped like a stone, our ears went berserk, and it took a few minutes before we were beyond the hail and wind.

Commentators are calling for the pilots to be named and rewarded.
