The two former Ejército del Aire (EdA, Spanish Air Force) KC-130Hs bought by Peru are on their way. Still grey and with Spanish roundels, TK.10-11/31-53 and TK.10-12/31-54 landed at Gando, Grand Canaria on 11 February 2021.
Both aircraft are expected to arrive in Peru on Sunday 14 February 2021. The Fuerza Aerea del Perú (FAP, Peruvian Air Force) paid USD 35 million for the birds that will join Grupo 8 at Lima/Callao.
