Lockheed Martin announced on 28 September that the Royal Norwegian Air Force has formally accepted a C-130J Super Hercules to replace the aircraft that was lost in March of this year.

According to Lockheed Martin, the aircraft was originally destined for Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, but was redirected to become the replacement aircraft, thanks to ‘strong cooperation between the governments of the United States and Norway’.

A ceremony was held to mark the acceptance by Norway at the company’s Marietta, Georgia, facilities attended by Tony Frese), C-130 Norwegian programme director, and Brigadier General Frode R Flølo, chief of the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation - Air System Division, who accepted the aircraft.
