Mezza,

Y means service evaluation, X stands for experimental, which is usually associated with a design prototype. The YC-122 info you are after can probably be located in the Avitruk section at www.theaviationzone.com/facts/c123.htm.

I can add that some of the YC-122Cs flew later as civilian aircraft, though I don't know anything about the owners or type of operation they had.

Very interesting... This was the plane, the C-123, which was the primary plane shown in the movie "Air America"

Yes, the CIA flew them and many others in southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.

The C-123 was used in the movie, not the YC-122

The original design was a Transport Glider,built by Chase,and called CG-18.In 1948,2 R-2000's were added and it became YC-122A.The B version had 2 R-1820's,as did the C model.9 production examples of this latter version were produced.30 seats and fixed gear.Used by the USAF until mid-57.
Chase was acquired by Fairchild later on and they produced the C-123 Provider wich also started out as a Chase glider project,the G-20.
