US Navy receive custom logo on Tanker Aircraft

VX-20, the first US Navy Squadron that Marshall have supported, tasked Marshall to paint the tail of one of their KC-130J aircraft with their one-of-a-kind squadron logo.

The KC-130J aircraft arrived at Marshall Aerospace, Cambridge in January 2022 and underwent its principal maintenance inspection along with a lot of additional structural work. Last week, the aircraft flew out of Cambridge fully rectified, freshly painted and proudly donning it’s new logo.

Senior Technician, Shaun Blayney led the team on this piece of work at Marshall Aerospace and said:

“It required a tremendous team effort to get this aircraft back to the squadron. There were plenty of challenges to overcome, but we we’re all excited to see it leave Cambridge in top condition and sporting an incredible looking logo designed by our own team at Marshall Group.”

Air Test and Evaluation Squadron VX-20 is a proud member of Naval Air Systems Command and traces its roots to the founding of Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland. Current aircraft supporting test at VX-20 are the C-2A, C-12M, C-38, E-2C/D, E 6B, C/KC-130J/T, MQ-4C, P-8A, and T-6A.
