WATERKLOOF, South Africa, Sept. 13, 2016 –Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) invites members of the media attending the Africa Aerospace & Defence Expo here to a C-130J Super Hercules briefing on Thursday, Sept. 15. Details are below.

C-130J Super Hercules: Built For Africa
With C-130s delivered to 19 different African countries, Africa truly is “Hercules Country.” The C-130 can handle any of Africa’s varied mission needs, from the grasslands to the desert to the continent’s vast coastlines. No matter the mission, the C-130 is there.

Like the many Hercules that have come before it, the C-130J lives up to – and expands – Hercules’ reputation of being the world’s most proven workhorse. The C-130J Super Hercules is the proven standard in tactical airlift, providing a unique mix of versatility and performance to complete any mission, anytime, anywhere. The Super Hercules worldwide fleet has more than 1.5 million flight hours to its credit and is flown by 19 different operators. With 17 different mission capabilities, it’s the only airlifter that can support the many missions that African operators must support.

Join us for a media briefing that provides insights and updates on the C-130J Super Hercules program at Africa Aerospace & Defence.
