Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel! Today’s video will all be about how airplanes deal with lightning strikes. How dangerous is it to fly nearby a thunderstorm, what happens if you get hit by lightning and what are further consequences.
I´m honoured to take part in an experiment at the “Deutsches Museum” here in Munich Germany, to show what happens once a plane gets hit by lightning. Their installation to show the effects of the Faraday cage are unique in Germany.
The “Deutsches Museum” is definitely worth a visit whilst you’re here in Munich. Check out their website at: www.deutsches-museum.de to get your tickets online and jump the queue upon arrival.
I´ll shortly mention how pilots talk to ATC on how to get an avoidance heading to circumnavigate a thunderstorm. I´ll show you what a thunderstorm looks like on a weather radar, your first steps to reduce risks of any damage to your plane. I´ll show you the entry and exit points after a plane got hit by lightning and the corresponding burn marks.
Regardless of that pilots will always do their best to circumnavigate thunderstorms as the airplane could get damaged to effects of turbulence rather than lightning strikes.

Thanks for watching, all the best your “Captain” Joe
