They'd be US spec and as such would be operated as a mini-fleet with, I suspect, crews only being qualified on one software level/aircraft.

I know of a good use for a 'mini-fleet' for a couple of years which would release 5 'standard' C130Js back to the airframe pool. Maybe even allow us to modify our own frames with a slighly reduced timescale.

Say 12 crews to operate 5 mini-fleet frames?

I wonder where we could get numbers like that in a hurry?

God knows - we could do with 5 more airframes in whatever shape or size at the moment!
