About the Royal Air Force

Formed in April 1918, the Royal Air Force has defended Great Britain from Bapaume to Bosnia. The RAF and its pilots are still acknowledged as the best in the world, and their battle honours are many and glorious. Part of their role involves keeping our armed forces supplied throughout the world and to help them in this task they use the Lockheed C-130 Hercules, The Herc' is the most numerous transport aircraft in the west and has been in production longer than any other aircraft in history. The prototype flew in August 1954 and since then over 60 nations have ordered the Hercules. Those in use by the RAF are C-130K versions (known as Hercules C1 and C3) and initial deliveries (of a total of 66 ordered) were made during the mid-1960s and many are destined to remain in service for some years to come, although about half of the fleet have been replaced by the updated C-130 (C4 and C5).
