Heartbreaking Look at Tripoli Airport Attack

Tripoli Attack destroys much of nation’s fleet.

Photographs have recently emerged of the fallout of fighting that has engulfed Tripoli Airport over the past month.  We’ve already seen video of the Airbus A-330 that was destroyed in the fighting.  Just last night, photos of other damaged and destroyed aircraft began to surface on the internet.  The damage is extensive. An Airbus A-320 that was only 3 1/2 years old looks to be a write off. The control tower also looks to be rendered completely useless by RPGs and rocket fire.   It appears that Tripoli is open again though.  The latest NOTAMS show that the field is operating albeit with some equipment out of service.
