India in 2010 ordered the six c 130 j Hercules military cargo aircraft for the Indian military forces. India spent near about thousands crores Indian rupees on getting this military cargo aircraft. Chief of Indian Air force said “we had sent the black box of the Hercules to the U.S. based company Lockheed Martin for knowing the cause of Hercules failure”. After some days I again got the news related to this crash that instrumentation of this military cargo aircraft had some defects. Cause searching bureau of the United States found that Chinese base company Hong Dark company supplied the instrumentation material to distributors of aircraft parts in U.S.A. This aircraft part distributor sent parts to Lockheed Martin. Government of United States cancelled the license of this company.
