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 Airbus A330 is no exception and here you will learn the ins and outs of lightning strike inspections performed on this aircraft type.
When first unveiled in 1992, the Airbus A330 stood out for being the largest twin-engine aircraft ever built until it got surpassed by the Boeing 777. The aircraft first entered service with Air Inter on March 12th, 1994.
