A terrorist mage cast a thunderstorm spell. Unfortunately, a commercial airliner was the target of said spell, which spawned the storm right around the aircraft.
The aircraft itself is a large modern jet, with double decks and four engines. While it doesn’t have any countermeasures like anti-terrorist mages, it has the advantage of being at its cruising altitude of approximately 10,668 meters (35,000feet) and being at its cruising speed of 1050km/h (652.43mp/h). The plane can’t just outclimb the thunderstorm, its top reaches up to 18,288 meters (60,000feet). The storm is a multi cell cluster, with wind speeds reaching up to 89km/h (55mp/h).
Fortunately, the storm only seems to affect the outside of the plane, so the cabin won’t be full of water vapor, suddenly depressurize, instantly drop to freezing etc.
This is kind of a last ditch spell for the mage because the mana consumption would actually kill them. So a situation like the aircraft getting out of the storm only to enter another one won’t happen.
Can the airline bring its people back home safely without any consequences? Would the plane sustain some light damage? Or is everyone going to die?
