Air Libya BAe 146 survives Benghazi fighting

Air Libya‘s BAe 146-300, 5A-DKQ (msn E3191), appears to have survived the fighting around Benghazi’s Benina International Airport. The 146 is visible, apparently undamaged, in video shot at the airport on 6 March. The airport has been the scene of fierce fighting between forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi and anti-government protesters. Benghazi has been the center of the uprising against Qaddafi’s rule, and has come under repeated attack by government forces. The airport’s runways were bombed by the Libyan Air Force to prevent the airport being used.
