LOCKHEED – MARIETTA, GA
Home of the Mighty Hercules, Decades of Aviation Innovation and Capability to Adapt to New Missions

In 1942 when U.S. Army Major Lucius Clay, a junior member of the War Department’s Airport Approval Board, suggested constructing an airfield in his hometown of Marietta, Georgia, he certainly could not have predicted that more than 70 years later it would still be a critical complex impacting global security. Not only was the airfield a strategically important during World War II, but the aircraft manufacturing plant, Air Force Plant #6, has produced aircraft which were pivotal to every conflict since then, and remains the home of the longest continuously active military aircraft production line for the last 60 years – the C-130 Hercules.

Manufacturing Excellence

The Lockheed Martin team at the Marietta facility is proud of their legacy. Yet, they have built more than C-130 airlifters over the past seven decades, they have also manufactured bombers, leading-edge strategic airlifters like the C-141 Starlifter and C-5 Galaxy, unprecedented maritime patrol and reconnaissance planes like the P-3 Orion, and the preeminent stealth and air dominance fighter, the F-22 Raptor.

The skilled men and women who build the C-130J Super Hercules today are turning out “zero-defect” airplanes, all the while maintaining a flexible production line that accommodates the many configurations available to customers around the world. A new addition to the facility is the production line for the F-35 Lightning II center wing assembly. This line leverages the latest in technology such as autodrills that can bore hundreds of holes per hour; unmanned, automated guide vehicles that move 1,500-pound assemblies; and the use of robots originally developed to apply stealth coatings for the F-22, that now apply coatings to the F-35 horizontal and vertical tails.
