A Lufthansa Airbus A321-200, registration D-AISR performing flight LH-816 from Frankfurt/Main (Germany) to Gothenburg (Sweden), was on approach to Gothenburg when the crew requested to enter a hold due to "build ups" on the final approach course to Gothenburg's runway 21, approach confirmed they saw build ups on the approach as well and saw lightning, but also advised that a short right hand circuit and short final to runway 21 appeared to be available. After two circuits and assessing their own weather radar as well as discussing with tower about tower's weather radar the crew opted to try the right hand pattern but received a lightning strike on downwind. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on runway 21.

The aircraft was unable to depart for the return flight - the flight was cancelled - and is still on the ground in Gothenburg about 29 hours after landing.
