Thunderstorm just North and Northeast of Altus Air Force Base on August 7th 2008. 2 C-17's had to quickly land before they were used as a lightning rod. Typically all operations on the flight line are shutdown if there's lightning within in 5 miles of the base, I'm thinking they cut it a little close this time.
