Qatar Flying High

MARIETTA, Ga, 06/20/2011 --

The first of four C-130J Super Hercules for the Qatar Emiri Air Force took to the skies over the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Ga., June 8. This is Qatar's first experience with C-130s, so the package provided by Lockheed Martin is a complete solution including four aircraft, training of aircrew and maintenance technicians, spares, ground support and test equipment, servicing carts, cargo pallets and a team of technical specialists who will be based in Qatar during an initial support period.
