Since Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi lost control of Tripoli and went into hiding, Libyan rebels have seized many of his personal belongings as trophies -- everything from gilded AK-47s to photo books of former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. But the biggest trophy so far has been the capture of Qaddafi's private plane, the "Afriqiyah One" Airbus A340, purchased in 2003 for about $120 million. On Mon., Aug. 29, rebels took turns posing on the aircraft's gaudy leather furniture and in its cockpit. Afriqiyah Airways, the national flag carrier, was based in Tripoli -- and this particular plane has been grounded since NATO imposed the no-fly zone over Libya six months ago. Other Afriqiyah planes were destroyed over the course of NATO's bombing campaign.
