Miscellaneous C-130 Photos

2013 Spotlight Web C130J 1998 C130J WorldTour Egypt 001 1267828237 3175
Lockheed Martin borrowed a short-fuselage C-130J back from the US prior to delivery and flew it around the world on a five-month demonstration tour in 1998. Company pilots and maintainers took the aircraft (company number 5454) to thirty-two countries on six continents. A total of 380 guest pilots flew the aircraft on 130 familiarity flights and more than 2,450 passengers were carried in special seating in the aircraft’s cargo compartment complete with a closed circuit TV feed to see what was happening on the flight deck. The first leg of the tour took the C-130J to countries in southern Europe, the Middle East, and as can be seen here, Egypt. [Lockheed photo]
