The second prototype C-15 being prepared for display at Farnborough International Airshow in 1976. The two YC-15 aircraft each had a different wingspan, this example having the shorter span of 110'. Although both the C-14 and the C-15 were initially unsuccessful, the C-15 served as the basis for the later, and much larger, C-17 transport.
