9. Kennedy Plane Diverted After Losing Power
6 minutes ago

BOSTON - A plane carrying U.S Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (news, bio, voting record) across Massachusetts was struck by lightning and had to be diverted to New Haven, Conn., his spokeswoman said.

The plane lost all electrical power and the pilot had to fly the plane manually, according to spokeswoman Melissa Wagoner. No one was hurt.

The Democrat had just delivered the commencement address at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams and was on his way his Cape Cod home when the plane was struck at about 2:45 p.m., she said.

Kennedy planned to stay in Connecticut overnight because he was scheduled to deliver another commencement address at Springfield College on Sunday, she said. The incident was reported to the Federal Aviation Administration, Wagoner said. The FAA did not immediately return a call.
