YC-15 on MDC Ramp

Untitled 1 In 1976, the YC-15 #72-1875 visited the MDC ramp for viewing by the St Louis personnel. Here are my photos of the visit. Notice that the aircraft was in Phase II testing and had a CFM International CFM56 as the port side #1 engine instead of the normal Pratt & Whitney JT8D-17 engine. The last photo shows a nice in-flight shot with this engine.
