MARIETTA, GEORGIA (BNS): Lockheed Martin has delivered the sixth C-130J Super Hercules to crews at Dyess Air Force Base (AFB), Texas.

Lt. Gen. Robert Allardice, 18th Air Force Commander, accepted delivery of the sixth of 28 C-130Js to be assigned to the 317th Airlift Group, a company release said.

The 317th Airlift Group at Dyess continues to transition to the new C-130J Super Hercules. By 2013, Dyess will have the distinction of being home to the largest C-130J fleet in the Air Force when it receives its 28th Super Hercules aircraft.

Dyess officials currently fly the C-130 H and J models. The J-model continues to be the global leader in tactical airlift and one of the most versatile aircraft in the US inventory.
