Narrative:
This Libya National Army, Aero L-39 Albatros, made an emergency landing near the Libyan-Niger border. Reason for the emergency landing is unknown. The aircraft suffered substantial damage as part of the left wing is damaged as well as the left aileron is missing and the nose wheel seems that it did not go out. Possibly it was flown out from Brak Al-Shati (HL73) were one can find many L-39's stored. The 2 pilots were held by pro-GNA Tribes according to some sources. One can observe the the green roundel on the aircraft wings which was used under the Gaddafi era.
