Happened today, apparently. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=685fKmvRZxI&feature=youtu.be

12:15PM EDT at Lynchburg, VA KLYH. The aircraft is reportedly a 2016 G5 model, with the electronic ignition system that is being retrofitted into the G2-G3 fleet via a SB as the aircraft go through their 10-year chute repack.

There's going to be a lot of fine-tooth combs going over this, I expect. Since it happened not he ground, there's some speculation that unless a SDR is filed, the FAA is not technically required to investigate. i would hope someone would.

in the meantime, I think I'll work on avoiding thunderstorms. ;)

Best,
Andy
