Heavy-duty Hercules aircraft lands on Guam

Guam - Hercules is here - the airplane, that is.  Lynden Air Cargo's L-382 Hercules aircraft touched down on Guam last night, being one of the few aircraft that can land on a short-runway but carry large, bulky cargo.

Lynden Mid-Pacific Director Jeff Bell says it'll really benefit local contractors, telling KUAM News, "It's really going to help with construction companies - large and oversized pieces that have time-sensitive applications. So for the individuals I'm not sure, but for companies and the construction projects that are happening, it'll have a big impact."

Bell added that while the Hercules won't be based out of Guam, it can be brought in when needed. Lynden Air Cargo operates throughout the world, particularly in Alaska, Russia, and Papua New Guinea.
