C-130 Hercules News
Lockheed Martin delivered the first of four C-130J-30 Super Hercules tactical airlifters with the Block 8.1 upgrade to the Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF), delivering advanced capabilities and increased Super Hercules interoperability in the Nordic region and across Europe.
For the first time since the 934 AW’s inception in 1963, one of its aircraft was piloted and operated by a team of all-female pilots and aircrew.
The 139th Airlift Wing has set a new milestone by pushing the boundaries of the C-130H Hercules aircraft. From Feb. 13 - 15, multiple aircrews flew a mission in which the aircraft's cumulative flight time was 41.5 hours with the engines running continuously for 45 hours.
