Test flight of C-130J for Oman

Issue No. 16 | August 16-31, 2012

A new C-130J Super Hercules for the Sultanate of Oman conducted a test flight at the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Georgia. 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. 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.
