As the fighting continues in Tripoli, here is a shocking image of one of several casualties at Tripoli airport where pro-Gaddafi forces launched an attacked yesterday - an Afriqiyah Airways Airbus A300 (note - I originally thought this was an A320, my bad).See more footage of the aircraft on this Reuters video.The photo was found on the Facebook group "Libyan Youth Movement".Rebel forces say they are now in control of the airport. In any case, it would appear that Afriqiyah Airways may need to call the loss adjusters. According to the Ascend database (as of 15 July 2011), Afriqiyah had 1 x A330, 3 x A319s, 6 x A320s and 2 x A330s in its fleet. The grounded airline had two A320s on order but Airbus has successfully managed to sell these white tails to Laos Airlines.
