Satellite photos of Misurata Airport, pre- and post-strike

The American Association for the Advancement of Science has done up a satellite's eye view of the battle of Misrata (Misurata) in western Libya, showing satellite photos of various locations in and around the city in early March and comparing it with another set of photos taken in April. Included in the set of photos are two of Misrata Aiport, with what appears to be Su-22s and Mi-24 Hinds before and after being destroyed by airstrikes. Also present are what appears to be SOKO G-2 Galebs parked a distance behind the Sukhois. Click on the thumbnails for higher resolution images.
