This Day in Aviation History
August 9th, 1976
First flight of the Boeing YC-14.
The Boeing YC-14 was a twin-engine short take-off and landing (STOL) tactical military transport aircraft. It was Boeing’s entrant into the United States Air Force’s Advanced Medium STOL Transport (AMST) competition, which aimed to replace the Lockheed C-130 Hercules as the USAF’s standard STOL tactical transport. Although both the YC-14 and the competing McDonnell Douglas YC-15 were successful, neither aircraft entered production. The AMST project was ended in 1979 and replaced by the C-X program….
