When flying in an aircraft, there are many safety factors to consider. For the passenger, it is unsettling when they begin to feel turbulence and experience a rocky ride. For the most part, turbulence is not necessarily dangerous. However, there are moments when there can become dangers and threats to the safety of an airplane. One factor is the chances of lightning striking an aircraft. To many people’s shock, aircrafts are actually very likely to be struck by lightning during their flight. Some reports state that active aircrafts will be struck at least once a year around the world. However, we rarely hear of such stories and their impacts on aircrafts.
