Researcher describes surviving aircraft lightning strikes

Lightning researcher Tom Warner flew in a modified T-28 while researching thunderstorms in 2003. He provides a unique perspective on being struck by lightning while flying. The T-28 is a relatively small plane with a large cockpit canopy so when struck by lightning, Tom states “it felt and sounded like someone slapped the canopy right next to my head.”
