Lockheed Martin delivered three additional Hercules aircraft to the US Air Force last week, in three different configurations.
First out on 19 March was a MC-130J Commando II Special Operations tanker for the AFSOC 353rd Special Operations Group at Kadena Airbase in Japan. Also on 19 March a HC-130J for the US Coast Guard was ferried to Greenville, South Carolina, for post-production modifications and a paint job. The USCG expects this aircraft in 2016.
Finally, on 24 March a HC-130J Combat King II personnel recovery aircraft went to the 347th Rescue Group at Moody AFB in Georgia.
