Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has presented the first completed C-130J Hercules aircraft to the Bangladesh Air Force at a ceremony in Cambridge.

The company is carrying out a comprehensive depth maintenance and modification programme on the fleet, purchased by the Bangladesh Air Force from the UK Ministry of Defence.

Modifications to the aircraft include adding a MEDEVAC capability, avionic upgrades and the provision of a passenger transport configuration.

Air Chief Marshal Masihuzzaman Serniabat, Chief of Air Staff of the Bangladesh Air Force, said: ‘This is such a proud moment for the Bangladesh Air Force. The roll out of our first C-130J aircraft here in Cambridge is a landmark occasion and we look forward to welcoming the aircraft soon in Bangladesh. I’d like to thank all the team from Marshall that have worked so hard to achieve this significant milestone.’
