      Which reminds me of the old joke about two guys looking up in the sky, at an airplane flying towards a towering thunderstorm.
      First Guy: Gosh, I’d hate to be up there in that plane, flying into that storm.
      Second Guy: I’d hate to be up there without it!

      Holy crap how did you get those photos

      Aperture priority, lens wide open, crank the ISO, set focus at infinity and deactivate autofocus, take a pic whenever there’s a lightning flash. Keep lens close to window to reduce reflections from plane interior. Helps to be lucky to pass close to storms with frequent lightning. Also helps to take a lot of pics. Probably helps to use a DSLR and fast prime lens.
