The probability of a lightning discharge is reciprocally proportional to the strength of the electric field the aircraft intruded.
The set of possible effects of a lightning discharge does not include welding of aircraft parts such as joints or bearings.
Because an aircraft acts as a "Faraday's cage", the magnetisation associated with a lightning discharge hardly has an effect on the magnetic compass.
While flying through air that is electrically charged the aircraft is likely to become a charge carrier itself and can initiate a lightning discharge.
