MARIETTA, GEORGIA (BNS): The Royal Canadian Air Force has formally accepted the 17th Lockheed Martin CC-130J Super Hercules, completing the order placed in December 2007.

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.

"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 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 Programmes.

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.
