Algerian Air Force C-130H Hercules

Lockheed Martin sold eighteen C-130 Hercules aircraft to Algeria between 1981 and 1990. The fleet comprises of a mix of C-130H and C-130H-30 'stretched' models, the latter of which is extended through the use of fuselage 'plugs' in front and behind the wing which together increase the overall length of the aircraft by just under 5 metres. The 2nd Tactical Airlift Wing's 332nd Tactical Squadron will be sending an aircraft to partake in the RIAT 2014 static park, flying in from Boufarik Air Force Base on Algeria's northern, Mediterranean coast.
