Commercial Application of Military Airlift Aircraft: Boeing BC-17
From Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
Commercial Application of Military Airlift Aircraft (CAMAA) is a joint initiative between the United States Air Force (USAF), Boeing and academia designed as a means to mitigate Congressionally ordered end-of-Cold-War force reduction through directives such as the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC). In its original form in October 2000, it was found to be inadequate or possessed limitations not necessarily conducive to project success in the estimations of program participants. A second iteration was approved for development as representative of atypical levels of industry and government collaboration. The Heavylift initiative, is an outgrowth of the intent and focus of the CAMAA program utilizing commercial/military Boeing C-17 Globemaster IIIs.
