Clarification on the 61st Airlift Squadron and the C-130J

The correct number of C-130Js that the 61st Airlift Squadron at Little Rock AFB, Ark., is slated to receive is 14, said Capt. Ashley Walker, spokeswoman for the 19th Airlift Wing, the squadron’s parent organization. The squadron’s ninth C-130J arrived at Little Rock in mid-October. Walker said the 10th C-130J is scheduled to arrive in Fiscal 2015, and then the remaining four will come to Little Rock in Fiscal 2016. The squadron will retire one of its remaining legacy C-130H1 airplanes in Fiscal 2015 and then the rest in Fiscal 2016, she said.
