The lavishly equipped aircraft with the identification 5A-ONE of the Libyan ruler Muammar al-Gaddafi (killed in 2011) is to seen at Perpignan Llabanere Airport (F). After the nationwide uprisings in Libya, the plane was brought to France in 2012 for repair. Damaged by many small-caliber bullets, it was able to fly, but could fly only up to 3000 m high and the landing gear was no longer retractable. In June 2015, the Kuwaiti Charafi group confiscated the plane in France. The background to this is the group's demands on Libya after the Gaddafi regime terminated a contract in 2010 for the construction of a Mediterranean resort. An Egyptian arbitration court awarded al-Charafi therefore 935 million euros - and the corporation wants to bring some of the money through the auction of the Airbus. The Libyan Authority for Special Flights considers this to be inadmissible because of the state sovereignty of Libya and demands the return of the aircraft. Now a complicated litigation is under way in France, as Air France has demanded several million euros for repair and maintenance of the machine, but has not received any money. The owner is still the Libyan government, but the lawsuit is presumably not settled yet.
