Spain Plane Struck by Lightning on Return from World Cup

The Spanish team made it back to Madrid after a long trip from Brazil. But they faced a hurdle of sorts when their airplane was struck by lightning on its arrival in their native land. 

The flight Iberia 2907 was hit with a lightning bolt that nearly scared the hell out of the team and the airline staff. However, it was a good thing that nobody on board was wounded by the lightning attack and moreover the airplane remained miraculously undamaged.

A spokesman from the Iberia flight confirmed that "flight Iberia 2907 was hit with a bolt of lighting. The airplane was not damaged and no one on board was harmed."

Already, the Spanish team faced a humiliating defeat in the World Cup taking place in Brazil. Nevertheless, it won over the Aussies so it was a face-saving match. 

"We are not pleased with our overall performance at the World Cup," Vicente del Bosquee told Spanish newspaper El Mundo. "But it was important to finish with a win. Against Australia we handed a respectable performance, except in the opening 15 minutes of the game. But the efforts shown by my players against Australia is to be praised."

Yet the Spanish mass media will not let things be. It is out for the blood of the Spanish team. Thus a sort of fear factor was added to the tragedy of losing for the Spanish team. 

But del Bosquee defended his team well. "Without considering the titles, for six years we have practically been first in FIFA's ranking," he said. "These players have done their work, they have behaved well."

"We are leaving with our head held high and now we have to allow others to step forward," he said. "The future of the national team is safe, whoever the national coach is."

As the Spain football team plane was landing at the airport it was literally hit by a bolt from the blue. The Iberia Airlines made a landing at 1000 Greenwich Mean Time.  And as it was struck by the thunderbolt, it was a saving grace that neither the passengers nor the plane incurred any injuries or damages respectively. 

Such occurrences are relatively rare and seldom of any danger in the real world. The plane is insured against any such incident or accident. Yet it could be said to have been a close call. 

The Spanish are known for their bullfights and beautiful senoritas. One is reminded of that song by Elton John, A World of Spanish, when one thinks of the Spaniards. 

They are a brave nation of spirited and football-loving people who don’t let a chance of accepting a challenge go untaken. Yet the loss of a game at this World Cup seems to be somewhat of a setback for the Spanish nation. 

The collective psyche is depressed at present after they lost on the football field. But tomorrow is another day and maybe at another time they will be proud winners once again.
