PHOTO OP: C-130J family photo

Lockheed Martin is in the middle of nearly tripling C-130J output from 2008 to 2011 as demand for the airlifter rises across the world. A company photo released on 10 August provides a unique glimpse of the diversity of C-130J customers. The line-up shows seven aircraft ordered by four different customers. From right to left, the C-130Js shown above are being delivered to India, Canada, US Marine Corps, US Air Force, Canada, USAF and Canada. The two USAF aircraft include one C-130J for the mobility fleet and one HC-130J for the combat search and rescue fleet.

    Ha! Nothing personal. You just don’t see a photo like that everyday.

    Hold the presses! Our IT police failed to censor the picture!

    I’m just happy to see a picture of a crowded line of spanking new iron.

    As much as it kills me to say, it is nice to see her Dyess 317th tail stripe. The AFSOC paint isn’t half bad either.

    Wait, didn’t EADS recently argue that the C-130J no longer met a “modern” users needs?

    Hmm. Seems a lot of customers think otherwise…
