The 17th of 17 CC-130Js built for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) completed final painting this week. Following acceptance flights the aircraft is scheduled for delivery in early May. The aircraft is shown being piped from the paint hangar by Major Allan MacKenzie, the RCAF Detachment Commander at Lockheed Martin in Marietta. Canada’s new CC-130Js have already been deployed to support a wide range of missions and the completed fleet will give Canada extensive mission flexibility for decades to come.
