Second C-130T Delivered to Philippine Air Force


Philippine Air Force (PAF) C-130T Hercules 5040 (ex USMC 163022) completed its delivery flight to Mactan-Benito Ebuen Air Base, Cebu, in the Philippines on October 9. It had left Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona, four days earlier.

This is the second of two former US Marine Corps C-130Ts being supplied to the PAF, after being de-converted from KC-130T tankers. Both were refurbished by the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at Davis-Monthan where they had been in storage following retirement from USMC service. The first example (5011/ex USMC 162786) arrived in the Philippines on April 5.
