The new LM 100J aircraft has caught the attention of those working with humanitarian missions and search and rescue. Lockheed Martin told us more about how this civil aircraft takes advantage of the strengths of the original military version, the C-130J – particularly the ability to access hard-to-reach places.

The commercial aircraft could be used in scenarios such as humanitarian service following natural disasters, nuclear accident response, oil spill containment and firefighting.

Lockheed Martin’s Anthony Frese told us more in this recent interview.
