Air Mobility Commander C-130J delivery

Lockheed Martin : 07 May, 2009  (Application Story)
Lockheed Martin has delivered the 13th of 16 C 130J Super Hercules to Little Rock Air Force Base, Ark. The aircraft will be assigned to the 41st Airlift Squadron, the first active-duty combat C-130J squadron in the U.S. Air Force. This latest C-130J Super Hercules was accepted by Gen. Arthur J. Lichte, commander, Air Mobility Command, Scott Air Force Base, Ill.
'While this isn't my first Lockheed Martin delivery this year [C-5M], this is my first C-130J delivery, and I have been looking forward to this great opportunity,' said General Lichte. 'And we [the Air Force] couldn't have done it without you [Lockheed Martin] and the great leadership of this organization along with the hard work of each individual on the floor who builds these aircraft each and every day.'

C-130Js from the 41st Airlift Squadron 'Black Cats' are engaged in high-tempo operations in multiple combat theaters. The C-130J is a proven airlifter that has been selected by 11 countries with 173 delivered of the 263 ordered to date. The C-130J is a flexible, multimission aircraft that has been delivered in varied configurations to meet a wide-range of operational needs. Worldwide, the C 130J fleet has accumulated over 500,000 flight hours.
