Lightning Puts Hole in Beechcraft Radome

Recently a Beech 99 pilot had a harrowing adventure as his aircraft was struck by lightning. The image below is from the Pilots of America blog site where a pilot describes his experience.  The Beech Model 99 does not use lightning diverters on its radome and is very susceptible to lightning damage.  Installing WXGuard lightning diverters would prevent the type of damage seen here. WXGuard is available was a 3M peel and stick tape that allows for a quick and durable installation. WXGuard can be ordered in one of three button sizes (oval, large round, small round) depending on the frequency of the radar system (most aircraft use oval).
