An Air Force C-130J Hercules will be operating from Parkes Airport in New South Wales over 20-29 March 2020.
The aircraft and crew will be flying day and night-time missions in cooperation with Australian Army units conducting training in the local area. This will include low-level flying by the Hercules, and airdrop training.
Air Force will undertake efforts to avoid any disturbance to the local community during flying missions.
This training will ensure Air Force is able to cooperate seamlessly with Australian Army units when conducting tactical airlift operations.
The C-130J is a versatile transport aircraft able to conduct day and night-time missions at low level, airdrop cargo and personnel to a drop zone, and operate into small, semi-prepared runways.
