I saw the TV news report that day. It appeared that, at least, one of SriLankan's Airbus widebody airliners was detroyed, may be another one as well. Any complete info?

Only one of the A340's was destroyed(4K-ADD i think) during the attacks, but the other one was damaged.
Looks like from what Na says, that one too has been written off. Sad end to a great aircraft. I personally liked the SriLankan livery, esp on the A340/330.
