From a post by 'ORAC' over on Pprune:

KABUL, Afghanistan - A British military C-130 cargo aircraft caught fire while landing at an airstrip in southern Afghanistan, but all aboard escaped unhurt, officials said.

One of the plane's tires burst when it hit the ground, sending debris into an engine, which then caught fire, said Sgt. Chris Miller, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition. He said the incident was not the result of militant fire.
Not sure of the original source of ORAC's info.

Why would they want 'J' models? I believe they still can't be used to push para's out of and from my own bitter experience any seating from the main spar backwards suffers from vibration noise that'd wake Stevie Wonder up.
