Photo Comment

This was Boeing's entrant into the USAF's Advanced Medium STOL Transport (AMST) competition that aimed to replace the C-130 Hercules as the USAF's tactical transport aircraft. Although all specifications were met this plane never made it into production and the USAF eventually decided to go with an udated C-130 and a larger transport (hence the C-17).
