Sana’a Airport bomb damage

Thank you to GEB reader AC for pointing us to the recently added imagery of Sana’a Airport in Yemen. The image comes from DigitalGlobe and was captured on March 27th, 2015.


Before and after images of buildings destroyed at Sana’a Airport, Yemen.

The conflict in Yemen is ongoing and the airport has been struck a number of times since March, including the bombing of the aircraft seen in this article. So check the location again in a month or two to see if new imagery gets added.

To see the buildings shown above and a couple of other noteworthy locations, download this KML file.
