BOEING C-97 STRATOFREIGHTER – History
The Boeing C-97 Stratofreighter was developed towards the end of World War II by fitting an enlarged upper fuselage onto a lower fuselage and wings which were essentially the same as the B-29 Superfortress. The prototype XC-97 was powered bythe 2,200 hp (1,640 kW ) Wright R-3350 engine, and even with this the performance was impressive – on January 11, 1945 the first prototype flew from Seattle to Washington, DC in 6 hours 4 minutes, an average speed of 383 mph (616 km/h). For the remaining models the powerplants were upgraded to the 3500 hp (2,610 kW ) Pratt & Whitney Wasp Major. The military transport had a useful payload of 35,000lb (16 t) and could carry two normal trucks or light tanks. Loading was by a retractable ramp into doors in the bottom of the fuselage, which was pressurised in flight. About 74 Boeing C-97’s were built, but the design really flourished in the guise of the KC-97 Stratotanker flight-refuelling tanker. The USAF Strategic Air Command had C-97 Stratofreighters in service from 1949 through 1978.
