Narrative:
In clashes between rival militias, the Yemeni presidential Boeing 747SP was sprayed with bullets from gunfire from forces loyal to Ali Abdullah Saleh. Satellite images of May 23 show the aircraft destroyed on the tarmac. This likely happened in an attack on the airport just prior to that date. This attack also destroyed a Boeing 737-200, registration TL-ADR, that had been stored at the airport since at least June 2011.
