Lightning on the Plane

Today, with the development of technology day by day, planes can continue their flight without being affected by lightning. The planes are designed in accordance with the Faraday cage concept. This design allows the lightning to escape into the air without damaging the interior of the aircraft in the event of a lightning strike. In addition, the paint in the aircrafts’ fuselage also has antistatic properties. Antistatic paint prevents electricity from passing into the aircraft. Specially designed against lightning strikes in airplanes, equipment that allows the electricity to enter the air prevents a serious and dangerous situation for the aircraft. In addition to this equipment, the liquid seals around the fuel tanks and the jumpers that throw the electricity from the plane minimize the electrical discharge caused by lightning.
