Passengers panicked when an Atlas-Global jet flying from Istanbul to Ercan was forced to make an emergency landing at Çanakkale Military Airport after the front of the plane was struck by lightening.

The nose and part of the port side wing was damaged. Landing the plane was made difficult because the cockpit windscreen had been smashed.
