Lightning can hit an aircraft. Researches show that every aircraft is struck by a lightning once a year on average. If an aircraft is struck by a lightning, it can cause a radiant light and a strong rumble along with shakes. In case of a lightning strike, passengers should remain calm and follow the flight attendant’s instructions.
Planes are engineered in accordance with Faraday cage design. Once a plane is struck by a lightning, lightning turns back into the air while the plane remains unharmed. Also, the plain is painted with anti-static paint. This paint allows lightning to leave the planes unscathed. Designed against a lightning strike with its equipment enabling lightning to go back into the air, aircraft remains unharmed or sustains only minor damages.
Liquid seals around the fuel tank and the jumpers helping the static on the aircraft’s outer body to pass harmlessly minimize the effects. Only the small parts on the aircraft’s outer body might get harm but it is quite predictable in case of a lightning strike.
