“Third” Strike – Leader Formation

“Third” Strike – This is a good picture of leader formation from the wing due to the strong electric fields around the airplane as it flies near a thunderstorm. This is not a “lightning strike” because a single hot channel does not form which indicates charge is being transferred from the clouds.
