Dean Baldwin Paints New C-130J Super Hercules

May 19, 2023

The first of three C-130J Super Hercules aircraft for the Sultan of Oman was formally accepted August 30 at Lockheed Martin’s Marietta facility. The impressive aircraft painted in a very unique livery was on display for the ceremonies. The aircraft was painted by Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. at its Roswell, N.M. facility. Dean Baldwin Painting is mostly noted for its commercial aircraft painting; however, the company has serviced hundreds of C130s over the years. 

“We are very honored that Lockheed Martin entrusted us with such an important and difficult project,” said Barbara Baldwin, CEO of Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. “We’ve painted many C130 aircraft, some in a camouflage livery; but, this is the first in a VIP high-gloss camouflage.”
This may be the first C130 aircraft ever painted in this type of livery. The new C-130J will be used to support internal country operations.
