The first Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) C-130J Super Hercules took to the skies on August 14, 2013, for its maiden flight at the Lockheed Martin production facility in Marietta, Georgia. This C-130J (Lockheed Martin aircraft number 5730) is scheduled for a 2014 delivery to the ROKAF.

In June Lockheed Martin gave the first South Korean C-130J already a nice paint scheme, including the picture of an eagle on the side of the fuselage.
