M.Broadbent - LM-100J /Commercial/
In October 2017, the LM-100J deployed to Puerto Rico to transport supplies to communities affected by Hurricane Maria. Note the Lynden Air Cargo L-100 in the background.
The second LM-100J N5105A (c/n 5814) first flew in October 2017 and is instrumented for handling and performance testing and some avionics trials.
First to fly on May 2017 was N5103D (c/n 5818), which is used for most of the avionics testing.
There is a close link between the LM-100J and the C-130J, with some military capabilities retained as they support civilian mission requirements.
The aircraft will be capable of carrying a 50,000lb payload.
