A380 Lightning Strike During Landing

The largest commercial passenger aircraft is not immune from lightning. In fact, due to its size it should trigger more lightning strikes. Take a look at this passenger video of a lightning strike to an Airbus A380 wingtip.

Below the video are a couple stills showing the high voltage leaders emanating from the tip of the winglet and the forward corner of the wing.  This is a textbook lightning attachment.
