The LM-100J Wows a Global Audience at Farnborough Airshow


The LM-100J performed a memorable flight demonstration at the Farnborough Airshow in the UK July 16, 2018, demonstrating its capabilities on the global stage. Lockheed Martin’s LM-100J (Model 382J) is a derivative of a C-130J-30 Super Hercules, which is currently the airlifter of choice with 16 nations throughout the world. Through select design changes, the LM-100J will perform as a civil multi-purpose air freighter capable of rapid and efficient transport of cargo. The first LM-100J is in production.

Through select design changes, the LM-100J performs as a civil multi-purpose air freighter capable of rapid and efficient transport of cargo. The LM-100J is an efficient and ideal airlift solution when delivering bulk and oversize cargo particularly to austere locations worldwide. The LM-100J incorporates technological developments and improvements over the existing L-100s at a competitive price that results from years of C-130J operational experience, including more than 1.2 million fleetwide flight hours. The result of this experience and advancement translates to an aircraft that delivers reliable service in a versatile airframe for decades to come. The first LM-100J is in production as of April 2016, reaching major production assembly milestones at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics sites in Marietta, Georgia; Meridian, Mississippi; and Clarksburg, West Virginia. Wing production has begun in Marietta, which is home to the C-130J Super Hercules final assembly line. Other structural parts are in production at Lockheed Martin Meridian and Clarksburg facilities.
