Oman’s C-130J takes flight

9th August 2012 - 15:29 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has announced that the new C-130J Super Hercules for the Sultanate of Oman has conducted a test flight at the Lockheed Martin facility.  The company made the announcement 8 August 2012.

This is the first of three C-130Js on order for Oman, and is scheduled for delivery later this year. Oman currently operates a fleet of three C-130Hs purchased in the early 1980s.  According to the company, the new C-130J will be used to support internal country operations where its ability to operate out of remote austere airstrips will be invaluable.
