I hate to burst some bubbles, but I've seen several Airs that were struck by lightning. It enters through the blade tip, which is taller than the tower after all. It takes out the blades, circuit, and face bearings. Not cheap repairs.

picture this if you would, you have a turbine on a tower and the tower has a proper ground wire going down to an 8ft rod. your wiring also is coming down that tower and it is parallel to the tower. this causes an induced voltage to appear on all wires parallel to that tower. this has been a cause of radio equipment blowing out too and all of the wires need to be addressed to dissipate that potential before it reaches any circuitry be it in a turbine or in a house.
