This Spring we had an A320 struck by lightning.  We found no less than 18
impact marks most of which were around .025 in diameter and ran the length
of the upper fuselage.  Most of the impacts went clean through the skin of
the aircraft.  The pilot reported no abnormalities in the electrical system
at all and the post flight report showed no failure messages.
