Centre Wing Replacement

Structural integrity of the centre wing box life is limited by several factors but mainly the combination of the hours flown and the severity structural factors of the continuous flight load forces applied to the aircraft in operation. Marshall is in a unique position as the only MRO that has replaced the centre wing box with a new, zero life centre wing box on both the C-130 Legacy and C-130J aircraft.


Marshall has a bespoke facility with the infrastructure and tooling to carry out this complex structural upgrade programme. This important modification supports the through-life structural sustainment of the C-130 type aircraft for many years to come.
