Heart of Texas Bound: Dyess AFB Receives 27th C-130J Super Hercules

Another Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] C-130J Super Hercules (Lockheed Martin aircraft number 5724) was ferried to the 317th Airlift Group at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, today. Brig. Gen. Scott Goodwin, director of Operations, Headquarters Air Mobility Command, Scott Air Force Base, Ill., flew the aircraft to Dyess AFB. Goodwin is a command pilot with more than 3,500 flying hours in four types of aircraft, including the C-130 Hercules.

This is the 27th of 28 C-130Js for Dyess AFB, which will be the largest Super Hercules operator in the world with a fleet of 28 aircraft when it receives its final C-130J later this year. The aircraft is part of a contract initially awarded in 2008 and amended in 2010.
 
The C-130J Super Hercules worldwide fleet surpassed 1 million flight hours last month; missions flown by Dyess AFB C-130J crews and aircraft contributed to that milestone.
