The first C-130J Super Hercules for the Iraq Air Force has completed its first flight at the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Georgia. The company made the announcement on 5 September 2012.

According to Lockheed Martin, Iraq will receive its first C-130J later in 2012. The air force will use the aircraft for intra-theatre support of its troops and humanitarian relief operations in various locations.

Adding the C-130 to the Iraq Air Force fleet will allow the force to operate seamlessly with US, NATO and coalition forces, according to Lockheed Martin.
