August 20 - Air Charter Service (ACS) has arranged the first civilian cargo flight into Aden, the temporary Yemeni capital, since the troubles began in the country almost five months ago.

ACS ceo Justin Bowman stated that the company used an IL-76 aircraft to fly aid in last Thursday, on behalf of one of the governments working with the Gulf Cooperation Council. The aircraft was carrying 35 tonnes of food stuffs and medical supplies, as well as six diplomats.
