IAF's C-130 Hercules plane sets new record

Nov 19, 2017

The Indian Air Force's C-130 Super Hercules plane has set a new record for longest non-stop flight, the IAF said.

The Hercules carried out a grueling 13-hour-31-minute non-stop flight, setting not only an IAF record but also globally, it said in a tweet.

“The team got airborne at first light on Nov 18 and landed only at 6:31 pm. This required great courage, skill and strength on part of the team,” it added.

The origin and destination wasn't disclosed; and it wasn't a delivery flight.
The tweet by the IAF also has the date (year) wrong.
