A plane heading to New Plymouth airport was struck by lightning this week.

Manager Kevin Hill said the Mt Cook flight, from Auckland, was on approach for landing when it was hit on Wednesday night but there was no danger to passengers.

''They don't even know that it's happened,'' he said.

Engineers inspected the plane yesterday and it was cleared to fly again today.

Is high tea at a funeral parlour your cup of tea?

Yes, it's fun and even educational.

Hmmm, I don't object but it's not for me.

No, it's macabre and in bad taste.

Over my dead body ...
