This Libya National Army, Aero L-39 Albatros, made an emergency landing near the Libyan-Niger border.

Reason for the emergency landing is unknown.

The aircraft suffered substantial damage as part of the left wing is damaged as well as the left aileron is missing and the nose wheel seems that it did not go out.

Possibly it was flown out from Brak Al-Shati (HL73) were one can find many L-39’s stored.

The 2 pilots were held by pro-GNA Tribes according to some sources. One can observe the green roundel on the aircraft wings which was used under the Gaddafi era.

Local sources said that the 634 Infantry Battalion went to the plane’s landing site where the crew members were found in good health.

A video clip spread on social media shows the aircraft after it successfully landed:
