On average, every commercial aircraft is struck by lightning once or twice a year. After the aircraft lands, an inspection must always be performed to assess the state of the aircraft prior to return to service. The Boeing 757 is no exception and here you will learn the ins and outs of lightning strike inspections performed on this aircraft type.
The Boeing 757 first entered service in 1982, with British Airways as one of its launching customers. The aircraft quickly was a huge success in commercial aviation due to its range and general performance. During its production run of 23 years, more than 1,000 aircraft have been delivered worldwide.
