January 30 - China has conducted a successful flight of its first domestically developed jumbo air freighter, according to China's official state news agency Xinhua.

The aircraft named Yun-20, or Transport-20, has been developed for long distance air transport of both cargo and passengers.

"The successful maiden flight of Yun-20 is significant in promoting China's economic and national defence build-up as well as bettering its emergency handling such as disaster relief and humanitarian aid," Xinhua added.
