6th April

The RAAF has announced the letting of a 7.5 Million contract to convert the fusalage of an ex 37 squadron c130H to a loadmaster trainer to represent a C130J. It is to be a full fusalage which I presume will have the two extension plugs installed.

Wow a last something is being done to help training. I will be interesting to see the specs when they become available.

Does this mean the life of the c130J is to be extended or are we to buy new aircraft.

My undering is the RAAF and RAF have a joint study on the life of the J models. However the RAF airplanes have been worked much harder than ours and they are saying out of date service of 2010.
