The first C-130J Super Hercules for the Sultanate of Oman was formally accepted at ceremonies, August 30, at Lockheed Martin's Marietta (Georgia) facility.

This is the first of 3 C-130Js on order for Oman and is scheduled for delivery later this year.

The new C-130J will be used to support internal country operations where its ability to operate out of remote austere airstrips will be invaluable.
