Tripoli Airport Destruction

This is not a good week for aviation—but really more so for the people living in affected areas. 

Fighting recently restarted at TIP. The images are sad and terrifying.

It seems that at least a dozen passenger airliners were hit, mostly A320 and a few A319 and A330, but also a B737 and an Avro RJ100.
