With the Tesla coil operating at 20 million volts, the above photos show the various discharge paths that occur when an airplane is struck by lightning. These photos were taken while Project Tesla was under contract by the USAF for the investigation. During this investigation using a scale model, a 16-mm movie camera captured the frame in the lower right, which shows actual beads of ball lightning.
