C-130 Community Gathers for 25th Annual Hercules Operators Council

ATLANTA, Oct. 22, 2013 – Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] is hosting the 25th Hercules Operators Council (HOC) here, Oct. 21-24. More than 900 representatives from 36 nations are attending to discuss C-130 Hercules support, operations, upgrades and new fleet acquisition.

This year’s theme of “Proven and Still Proving It” provides insight into how the C-130 Hercules has not only proven that it is the world’s most versatile airlifter, but also continues to set new standards for flexibility and multi-mission capabilities.

The HOC environment enables worldwide Hercules operators and partners an opportunity to share insights and perspectives on pertinent C-130 topics as they apply to both legacy and C-130J Super Hercules models. During the HOC, attendees will hear from operators, industry partners, suppliers and Lockheed Martin subject matter experts about operational, technical, modification and maintenance topics of interest to the C-130 community.

Photos from the HOC will be shared on Lockheed Martin’s Flickr account and you can follow Lockheed Martin’s Twitter feed and #C130 for event updates.
