In 1996, eight C-130’s rolled out of the Lockheed Martin factory and sent to the Minnesota Air National Guard. Since then, the 133rd MXG has been maintaining these aircraft throughout its service life. Only one to date has reached 10,000 flying hours while deployed to Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait on February 10, 2020. Jet 96-10003 hit this mark after completing tours to Oman, Bagram, Kuwait and other operations since 2002.
