    It's not grounded, and the airframe acts as a Faraday cage.

    Lightning, not lightening.
    Rationale, not rational.

    Just for my own sanity please note that was a copy and paste of timojin's original - ummm, "topic" - on my part. (plus word replacement)

    Fixed:
    Lightenings [sic] strike car on the ground, but apparently does not cause harm, What is the rational [sic]? I'm not sure how to emulate the little green squiggly underline word processors utilize for grammatical errors so that part will remain unannotated.

    Just out of curiosity ....

    Why not just answer the member by giving him a list of basic textbooks?

    I can look out for textbooks without your suggestion . A forum is to discuss things textbooks not necessary always have the answer, a variety of people with experience I consider are a better source
