Update- C-130 AMP is "targeted for cancellation"

Even as Boeing has completed development on the C-130 Avionics Mondernization Program, the Air Force — which cancelled the Milestone C approval meeting this summer — is apparently angling to cancel the program.  C-130 AMP would upgrade C-130 cargo planes with “glass cockpit” control systems. But it has been beset with cost overruns and a halving of the number of aircraft it would have been installed in.

“Air Force officials have proposed to end the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program, a multibillion-dollar program aimed at updating the cockpit of older C-130 aircraft, according to a Bloomberg.com report.”
