An Air France plane carrying 228 people from Brazil to France has vanished over the Atlantic after flying into turbulence, airline officials say. The Airbus sent an automatic message at 0214 GMT, four hours after leaving Rio de Janeiro, reporting a short circuit. It may have been damaged by lightning.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the hypothesis that the ‘plane may have been damaged by lightning’?
OPTIONS
 
 1)Aeroplanes get hit by lightning on quite a routine basis without generally any problems occurring at all.
 2)Lightning can strike a plane flying into turbulence - the charge flows around the plane's skin and can damage electrical systems.
 3)All aircraft wings have what are called "static wicks" which dissipate electricity safely and completely.
 4)The Aviation Safety Network database lists just 15 incidents of damage due to lightning in more than 50 years of aviation history.
 5)Lightning can ignite vapour in a fuel tank of an aeroplane, causing an explosion.
