Thursday will be a big day for Dyess Air Force Base, as the final C-130J aircraft will be delivered.
It’s the last of the 28 C-130J models to be delivered to the 317th airlift group to replace the old C-130s.
In honor of the final delivery, the Abilene Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee is throwing a "Super J Fleet Complete Gala" at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Abilene Civic Center.
Tickets are $30 per person.
