Buy Tickets

The Qatar Emiri Air Force operates four examples of the C-130J-30 Hercules, delivered to Doha by manufacturer Lockheed Martin in 2011-12. Qatar became the first Middle Eastern customer for the current C-130J variant of the famed tactical transport when it signed a $393.6-million deal for the aircraft, plus spares and training provision, in October 2008. Its aircraft are C-130J-30 models with a stretched fuselage. The Qatari air arm has recently modernised its transport fleet, used for both military and humanitarian tasks, to a considerable extent with the addition not only of the Hercules but also a pair of Boeing C-17 Globemaster IIIs.
