Abstract

The results of lightning interaction with an aircraft are shown in this paper. An in-flight lightning strike damage assessment system has been developed, installed and tested. The data obtained from it was then compared to the worldwide and European ground-based lightning detection networks. High energy radiation bursts were detected inside the cabin synchronously with lighting current pulses. Their origin and possible threat are unknown and need further investigation.
