MARIETTA, GEORGIA (BNS): The Iraqi Air Force (IQAF) is set to receive its final three Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules airlifters.

Aircraft number 5721 was the first of these aircraft to be ferried from Lockheed Martin's production facility here on April 23, 2013. All three C-130Js were ferried to US Air Force bases prior to delivery to the IQAF.

The IQAF, a legacy C-130 operator, received its first C-130J in December 2012 and will have a total of six C-130Js in its new Hercules fleet.

The IQAF uses the airlifters for intra-theater support for its troops and to provide humanitarian relief operations in various locations.
