You can track her return on FlightAware. Coverage should be decent now that she's over North America

#BAFans your C-130 pilots and crew have arrived at NAS JRB Fort Worth! The team will now complete scheduled maintenance on the aircraft, prior to returning home to Pensacola, Florida!

“This aircraft is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of all those involved in our airframe transition,” said Capt. Beau Mabery, Lead C-130 Demonstration Pilot, USMC. “We are so thrilled to finally be stateside with our new C-130J and look forward to showcasing it’s capabilities to air show spectators and aviation enthusiasts around the world.”

Welcome Home Bert! It was an honor to have our signature Delta formation escort our C-130 pilots and maintainers back home to Pensacola! The beautiful backdrop of the Emerald Coast made it very special for the entire team.
