|Quoting Skibum9 (Reply 6):|
I've also heard that static can discharge inside the airplane, with the result of a static ball rolling down the aisle of an airplane. I haven't seen this, but a few pilot buddies who fly some 757s and A320s have told me about this. I would love to see a video of that! But it probably scares the crap out of pax.

This is actually quite harmless. It's the same stuff inside those balls that you touch with your hand and the electricity follows your finger. If the pilots would have touched the windshield, it would have done the same thing (I'd be in the F/0 seat with my finger on the windshield the entire time
