Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) on Tuesday marked the 60th anniversary of the roll out and first flight of the first C-130 (C-130A 53-3129 c/n 3001) Hercules built in Marietta, Ga.
Gov. Nathan Deal reenacted the 1955 ceremony held at the Marietta plant by christening a C-130J Super Hercules (MC-130J 13-5770 c/n 5770) with a bottle of Chattahoochee River water, just as Gov. Marvin Griffin did 60 years ago. Check out the venerable aircraft and the event today in the slideshow on the right.
The C‑130 production line in Marietta is the longest continuously operating military aircraft production line in history.
