New Herk

Recommended Posts

Had 2 reports yesterday that a new Herk was test flying out of Marietta.

One said for India, the other said for Saudi.

Lockheed 5780

Anyone know who it is for?

Thanks

Bob

c/n 5780 is for Saudi Arabia.  It is the 2500th C-130.

c/n 5779 is also for Saudi.

Thanks

BTW we always disagree with Lockheed on the number produced because Lockheed says they did not build c/n 5048 N82178, and c/n 5055 N8213G and c/n 5056 N8218J, my guess is contracts with the spooks.

 

Added c/n links--Casey

Interesting... I was not aware for their denial.  Seems like they would have given them c/n's that were not sequential to the rest. 

 

So lockheed is officially claiming 2500?

I was told that 5780 was number 2500.  I am not sure if this includes the YCs, L-100s or the three that bob mentioned above.  I'll try to do a count when I have a free minute.

From Bob's list. A-233, B 230, E-493, H-1085, L100-118.  That totals 2159 including the two YCs and the three bob mentioned.  5780 is the 346th J and that would make a total of 2505. 

 

Minus the three Bob mentioned above and the two YCs that would make 5780 the 2500th by Lockheed's count. 

5777 would be the 2500th by Bob's count (the correct count).

To reduce confusion, I corrected my errors in the above post and deleted my/your other posts.  Thanks for straightening me out.

Moody got 13-5782 today.  Lockheed is calling it 2500th "delivered".  Not 2500th built but delivered.  We also got 12-5773 today.
