Depart Salina and transit to storm area. Transit altitudes out of SLN included time at FL250, & FL350. Perform spiral descent from FL350 to 4,100 ft msl and perform “L” patterns around cell area at altitudes between 4,100 & 15,000 msl sampling storm inflow atmosphere. Climb to altitudes between FL310 & FL350 flying through storm outflow anvil area. Incurred either a lightning strike or an induced electrical discharge while flying in this band. Return to Salina. NCAR GV participated at high altitude over storms during this same period. After landing the right wing outboard static wick was partially eroded and a 3/8” burn hole was discovered in the right elevator inboard trim tab trailing edge.
