Boeing YC-14

The Boeing YC-14 and McDonnell Douglas YC-15 were designed to meet the need for a large STOL cargo aircraft to replace the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.  The YC-14 first flew in 1976 and a competitive fly-off against the YC-15 was completed in 1977.

Neither the YC-14 or YC-15 went into production due to budget constraints in the mid-1970s.

Two prototypes were built.
