LOCKHEED MARTIN COMPLETES DELIVERY OF 17 CC-130J SUPER HERCULES AIRCRAFT TO CANADA
MARIETTA, Ga., May 8, 2012 -- The Royal Canadian Air Force formally accepted the 17th Lockheed Martin CC-130J Super Hercules in ceremonies here today, completing the order placed in December 2007. The aircraft will be flown to Canadian Forces Base Trenton later this week.
The original contract called for all 17 aircraft to be delivered by the end of 2012. The first CC-130J was accepted in June 2010 and today's acceptance demonstrates the success of the program and the completion of deliveries ahead of schedule.
"The delivery of the final CC-130J Hercules to the RCAF represents a significant milestone in the history of the RCAF," said Lt. Col. Colin Keiver, Commanding Officer, 436 (T) Squadron. "The aircraft has already proven its worth around the world in places like Afghanistan and Libya, as well as here at home in Canada. Our partners at Lockheed Martin have delivered us an aircraft that more than lives up to the motto of 436 Squadron, 'Onus Portamus' or 'We Carry the Load'."
"The C-130 Hercules has acquired many nicknames and affectionate titles over the years, but it is in Canada that the aircraft has earned a name that I think summarizes the true meaning of this aircraft -- Workhorse," said George Shultz, Lockheed Martin vice president and general manager, C-130 Programs. "Today recognizes another great chapter in Canadian airlift history and in the continuation and expansion of the long and strong relationships with our industrial partners in Canada."
To date, Lockheed Martin has delivered more than $350 million in Industrial and Regional Benefits (IRB) to Canadian industry as a result of the Government of Canada's procurement of the CC-130J aircraft and In-Service Support.

Fucking staff played some mind games with us and we approached the status of cock platoon for the weekend but we got leave for saturday night, so everyone's getting fucking shittered. High school wasted tonight.
nearly 70 F-15E's performing an elephant walk. An awesome display of US airpower, the entire Canadian Air Force only has 79 F-18 in operation by comparision. IMHO the lastest F-15E varient should be Canada's choice to replace our F-18s.
