    The 176th Wing, Alaska Air National Guard, received its first new HC-130J “Combat King II” aircraft at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, June 3, 2017. The aircraft is the first of four new aircraft that will replace the HC-130N models previously flown by the 211th Rescue Squadron, the last of which was transferred to Patrick Air Force Base, Florida, in January, 2017. Modifications to the HC-130J include improved navigation, threat detection and countermeasures systems, among a variety of additional upgrades. Aircrew, including the wing commander, Col. Steven deMilliano, and the 211th Rescue Squadron commander, Lt. Col. Eric Budd, traveled to Lockheed Martin’s plant in Greenville, South Carolina this week to sign for the new aircraft. Members of the 176th Wing, along with family, friends, and retirees, met the aircraft for its arrival at JBER, and were able to view and tour the aircraft after it was greeted with a firetruck water arch.
