A passenger boarding a plane from Estonia Spain
On Saturday (06), Air Baltic recorded the exact moment of thunder on the left wing of the aircraft. According to the website Aviation Herald,
The episode left no injuries. See the moment of impact:
The suspicious aircraft was a Bombardier C – Series CS-300 – also known as the A220-300 after the Airbus takeover – and took off from Runway 26 at Leonart Meri Airport in Tallinn, Estonia.
Data from the Radoxbox platform show that the impact occurred when the passengers were 2,400 meters away from the ground. That is, 4 minutes after take off, the beam reached the wing. As soon as the incident happened, the pilots returned to the airport and changed the plane. This is because, when an electric discharge occurs in an aircraft, the stored energy is dissipated.
As a result, the metal parts of the aircraft may overheat or be damaged due to the high intensity of the discharged electricity. Until the manufacturer performs an inspection and preventive maintenance on the aircraft’s structure, the suspicious aircraft will remain on the ground.
