Tornadoes are especially prevalent in the American Mid-West. This film examines the relationship between tornadoes and lightning, with a look at the massive tornado in April 1991 which devastated the McConnell airbase in Wichita, and NASA footage of lightning seen from outer space – including ‘sprites’ and ‘jets’ forming in the air above storms, and lightning striking planes and rockets. Finally, we take to the road with amateur storm chasers in the Mid-West.
