    (NECN/The Daily Mail) - Some amazing weather video was caught on camera: A plane heading from Dubai to Heathrow was hit by a bolt of lightning, and photographer Chris Dawson caught it as it happened.
         
    Video from The Daily Mail shows the lightning hit the roof of the plane right over the pilots' heads. It then travels through the plane and continues out the bottom.
         
    The Airbus landed safely a few minutes later and no one was hurt.

    Planes are made with metal conductors to let lightning pass safely through -- as this did.
