Ethiopian authorities have released several foreign pilots who were detained in Gambella Airport. The pilots were participating in a trans-Africa air rally. The Vintage Air Rally billed itself as a “flying rally across Africa, from Crete to Cape Town,” for planes built in the early 20th century. Wossenyelah Hunegnaw, head of the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority, said the pilots entered Ethiopian airspace illegally but after being investigated they were released.
