I've been on a plane that was struck by lighting. It was like a giant hammer hit the wing. No catastrophic failures, though.

The incident with the lightning strike was flying from LA to Vegas a couple of years ago. There was just a massive bang, the plane drop altitude quickly, and I think everybody either thought one of the engines had blown up or there was a bomb somewhere.
The captain came on quickly to inform everyone it was lightning and for all crew and passengers to remain seated for the duration of the journey due to a lot of turbalence. It was a pretty bumpy ride but nothing was (luckily) damaged.
