About the Blue Angels

The Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron was formed in 1946 by the United States Navy.[1] The unit is the second oldest formal aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world, after the French Patrouille de France formed in 1931. The Blue Angels’ McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornets (numbered 1–6) are currently flown by five Navy demonstration pilots and one Marine Corps demonstration pilot.

About the C130J

The Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft. The C-130J is a comprehensive update of the Lockheed C-130 Hercules, with new engines, flight deck, and other systems. As of February 2018, 400 C-130J aircraft have been delivered to 17 nations.[1]

The C-130J is the newest version of the C-130 Hercules and the only model still in production.

Why this livery should be added

This one should be added because we are lacking in the amount of display team aircraft in Infinite Flight and also we have the old liveried one so this new one would be a nice addition. Also, this one is now the new one so it would be more accurate to use

If I’m correct, the Fat Albert in the simulator already is that of an older C-130H variant with a 4 bladed prop. This is the newer C-130J variant which has a 6 bladed prop as the Blue Angels recently upgraded to the newer variant.

Don’t see a reason to close this, it’s a valid request to add the livery to the C-130J variant.

The C-130H currently has the Fat Albert livery, not the J. This request can stay :)
