Court case reveals details of secret flights
In records of court case lie details of secret airlifts of terror suspects to CIA-run prisons
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Newly disclosed court documents are shining a brighter light on secret government flights that whisked terror suspects to CIA-run prisons overseas.

A hidden network of U.S. companies mounted the flights during the Bush administration, and a prominent defense contractor coordinated them.

The "extraordinary rendition" flights shuttled between Washington, foreign capitals, the U.S. military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and, at times, landing points near the CIA-run prisons.

The companies that aided the flights ranged from a leading government contractor, DynCorp, to aviation firms and caterers that stocked the planes with fruit platters and bottles of wine.

The revelations stem from an obscure court fight between a New York-based company, Richmor Aviation Inc., which supplied corporate jets to the government, and a private aviation broker, SportsFlight Air, which organized the flights.
