    But being struck by lightning shouldn't be enough to crash a plane even in poor weather? I would be very interested in the black box data and the pilots' actions.

    The airline itself appears to have had a checkered history...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhoja_Air

    It took a long time to load it's webpage...

    http://www.bhojaair.com.pk/home/

    By the time I completed Bondi Beach to Coogee and back run, the page hadn't been downloaded. Maybe too many attempting to download it.
