Lockheed Martin Informed the press that the fifth Aircraft in the contract for 6 C-130J Tactical tactical transport has been handed over to the IAF and is on its way to Hindon Airbase.

"India's sixth C-130J will be delivered in October," said Lockheed, adding that the fifth aircraft was being handed over "well ahead of schedule".

Deliveries of the stretched-fuselage transports started in December 2010.
The defence giant expects to receive a follow-on deal from India for a further six C-130Js.
