    Looks like you attempted a hijack but anyhow, the heat from the lightening bolt heats the surrounding air 5 times hotter than the sun. The air expands rapidly breaking the sound barrier and causing a sonic boom. Similar to that of an aircraft that breaks the sound barrier.

    Maybe we should start a Flipper Trivia section :p This is like a Royal Commission - not started unless the answers are already known....

    It was up for a day before the answer zap, maybe just a little too slow this time.
