Effect of Lightning on Light Aircaft

Recommended Posts

The link below refers to a CAA investigation report into the damage and crash of a K21 glider which was struck by lightning on 17.04.1999 in the region of Dunstable - the strike caused severe damage to the air frame to the extent that the instructor and the pupil pilot had to bail out.

The report also includes fairly detailed descriptions of types of lightning and their effect which some of you may find interesting:
