    Great news. We need another 44 birds to have an inventory of 50. But most probably will settle for 18.

    The beast already flies some 5.500 KM, it can halt and refuel from any airport, its not a fighter whose permission would be denied. So why mid air refueling panga?

    We should buy An-225 from Ukriane. Only 1is operational right now (it flew Delhi Metro's compartments from Korea to Delhi). Many An-225 are grounded because of financial troubles. They can take C-130s as a cargo. 🙂

    Is it C-130J or C-130J-30 ? Please clarify as news reports say C-30J-30 whereas the fuselage in the photograph says C-130J…

    This is not the first time the IAF has flown the C130. In the late 1980s Indira Gandhi tasked the IAF to establish an airline with Dakshin Gangotri in Antartica. A hand picked team of IAF personnel trained in Argentina for 2 months ( the actual course at the time was 6 months) and carried out a prooving flight from Argentina's southernmost island base and back non stop. Surprisingly this mission has never been given its due. The IAF crew flew with an Argentinian crew and successfully completed this mission.
