Risk To Civil Aviation - Libyan Conflict

Wed Aug 24, 2011 9:20 pm

Its widely accepted that The 'Lockerbie bombing' of Pan Am flight 103 was ordered by Gaddafi. In recent days the Scottish government has admitted that it has lost contact with Abdelbaset Mohmed Ali al-Megrahi, the Libyan national who was convicted as the mastermind behind the bombing, who was released on grounds of ill-health in 2009.

NATO has been instrumental to the downfall of the Libyan oppressors and whilst there has not been any media mention of a heightened threat to civil aviation on the back of the Libyan conflict, as the grip of Gaddafi weakens is there any risk of a retaliation attack on western aircraft?

I doubt any more than before. I'd frame this the same way I did after we killed Bin Laden and say that they already don't like us. They don't really need any more reason.
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

I can't find your post? I don't mean aircraft in Tripoli / Libya I mean civil aviation in general.
