Overview of Beirut airport showing the entire terminal, tower and all 3 rwys. In the far left, the edge of rwy 16/34 which is inactive now due to repairs. Rwy 17/35 is on the left, the old rwy 03/21 which is now used as a taxiway and parallel to it and by the residential buildings is rwy 03/21. The dark squares on the concrete are the repaired bomb craters caused by the latest bombings. At least 2 of these can be seen on rwy 17/35 and one on the old 03/21.

Those bombings destroyed a good airport. It will never be the same again, unless you redo the intire length of the rwys.

No country in the world can go through the kind of hardships lebanon goes through and recover like lebanon recovers... lets pray for the best for this beautiful (but cursed) country!

Very nice and sharp photograph of Beirut airport. Seeing the repair spots from the Israeli bombings makes me sad, but I'm glad the airport is up and running again.

Typical sight of the terminal during the late morning hours. Traffic gradually picks up in the evening and reaches its peak at night.
