Norwegian C-130J Super Hercules

Buy Tickets

The latest variant of the venerable Lockheed Martin C-130 - the C-130J Super Hercules - will be on static display at the Air Tattoo courtesy of the Royal Norwegian Air Force.

The C-130J can fly farther, faster, with more payload and higher reliability than the vintage C-130Hs the nation had been operating. Norway took delivery of their upgraded airlifters between 2008 and 2010. The new fleet enables Norway to fully meet its national airlift mission requirements and those missions in support of international organisations like the UN and NATO.

The aircraft will come from 335 Sqn based at Gardermoen Air Station, 50kms north of Oslo.
