WARNER ROBINS, Ga., 7 Jan. 2012. Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Warner Robins Air Logistics Center on Jan. 3 marked delivery of the first C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) aircraft modified by Warner Robins. The aircraft is the fourth to be delivered to Little Rock Air Force Base, Ark.; the first three were modified by Boeing.

The C-130 AMP cockpit upgrade simplifies and standardizes the multiple C-130 configurations operated by the U.S. Air Force.

The aircraft is one of five that will participate in Initial Operational Testing and Evaluation (IOT&E) at Little Rock Air Force Base beginning later this month. The second low rate initial production aircraft at Warner Robins -- scheduled for delivery in February -- will be the fifth aircraft in the IOT&E fleet.
