    “I had just decreased altitude and airspeed in preparation for landing when I heard a loud sound and saw a bright flash of light,” he said. "The aircraft’s nose bucked up and to the right, but I was able to maintain control and land the plane."
    “Strands of metal, apparently from the steel power lines, were wrapped around the propeller, and I was shocked to see several dime-sized holes burned into the fuselage,” the pilot said. "I’m just grateful that I was able to land and that nobody was injured.”
