The first official photo of a new Fat Albert C-130J aircraft has been published by Blue Angels showing the livery changes.

The flight surfaces now have yellow tips, similar to Blue Angels’ F/A-18s, 2 stripes run down the side of the aircraft and the iconic white top has been changed to a tear drop design.

Blue Angels is close to receive the new Fat Albert C-130J aircraft. The squadron pilots and crew are currently in Cambridge, United Kingdom with new C-130J!

Over the next few weeks, team members will conduct a series of maintenance tests, which include an aircraft systems operational check out and a functional check flight, prior to completing the transatlantic flight to the United States.
