Lockheed Martin has rolled out the first new LM-100J commercial freighter.

Based on the Super Hercules military transport aircraft, the upgraded version is fitted with more powerful Rolls-Royce AE1107C Liberty engines and can be flown by a two-person flight crew. Lockheed produced an earlier version of the L-100s between the 1960s and the 1990s. First deliveries of the new LM-100J are expected at the end of next year.
