Marshall returns first overhauled KC-130J to USMC

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (MADG) has completed and redelivered the first US Marine Corps (USMC) Lockheed Martin KC-130J Hercules tactical tanker-transport to undergo a planned maintenance interval at its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in Cambridge, UK.

The milestone was announced by the company on July 5; two days after the aircraft – BuNo 165810 ‘BH-810’ (c/n 382-5509) – had departed Cambridge for its redelivery to its unit using the callsign ‘OTIS 81’. This KC-130J is assigned to Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252 (VMGR-252) ‘Heavy Haulers’ at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, North Carolina. The unit is the oldest continually active squadron in the USMC and provides for the transport of personnel, equipment and supplies, along with aerial refuelling services to fixed- and rotary wing aircraft.
