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.

What do you think of NZC's decision not to host T20 at Pukekura Park?

Typical. Always overlooked in favour of the big smoke

Just shows what a waste of time paying for those nets was

Gutted. T20 at the Park is a new summer tradition

Good call. NZC's got to pay those bills

Pleased. T20 is a bastardized version of the game. Bring on the one-dayers

I hate cricket. Watching grass grow is preferable
