    11-month-old Air Canada CSeries (A220-300 😏) C-GMYU (fin 111) today. Note the chunk missing from the vertical stab, and the unpainted replacement nose cone. Guessing lightning strike damage.

    For my knowledge why would a lightning strike on the tail result in a nose cone change?

    Depends on when/where/how, but it has to exit somewhere. I have a video somewhere of an ex-Acey 900 bearing the scars of a particularly nasty hit: it struck a wingtip on final approach and blew off the winglet, and burned out rivets all along the opposite side of the fuselage and wing, and exited via the other wingtip.

    Ravi de voir un lineup de gros-porteurs AC au South Pad. Des points bonus pour les trois portant encore l'ancienne livrée! Je suppose qu'ils viennent de quitter le service de fret transpacifique/transatlantique.
