Third Herk Set for AMP Mod:

The West Virginia Air National Guard’s 130th Airlift Wing has delivered one of its C-130 transports to the Boeing facility in San Antonio, where it will be the third Hercules to undergo avionics modernization program upgrades. Boeing VP Mike Harris said in a statement, “We have learned a lot from working on the first two AMP aircraft, and we are ready to apply those experiences as we start work on H3.” Earlier this year, the Pentagon recertified the C-130 AMP effort after it exceeded cost estimates, breaching the Nunn-McCurdy rule, but the Air Force cut the number to be modified by 80 aircraft.
