Planes getting struck by lightning

Do planes even get struck by lightning?

Planes get struck by lightning quite often. Planes are built to handle lightning, though. Commercial planes on average get struck by lightning once a year.
Piolets may experience a flicker of light or short-lived instruments.
The last plane that came down after a lightning strike was in 1963.
Most airplane skins are made of aluminum which circulates electricity well.

There is another concern...

The other concern is the fuel. Fuel is can catch fire with a little spark. So that little spark can cause the plane to burst into flames.

What does it feel like when your plane gets struck by lightning?

You will feel a really loud bang and a very bright light. The piolet will try their best to inform you about what happened.
