First C-130J Super Hercules for Dyess AFB Painted

MARIETTA, Ga., 02/09/2010 -- The first Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] C-130J produced for Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, leaves the company's paint facility in Marietta, Ga. Dyess will receive 28 C-130Js between 2010 and 2012 as part of the recapitalization of its aging C-130H1s. The C-130J will give Dyess a proven airlifter that will fly farther, faster, with more payload and much higher reliability. The first aircraft is scheduled to arrive at Dyess in the spring.
