56-3140 hooked up to a KB-50 tanker aircraft. Refueling with a straight probe was a challenge. Marvin Atchison, a crew chief from that era, told me recently that 56-3140 was involved in an accident that ripped the hose out of the tanker, thus catching the tanker on fire, causing 13 crewmen to bail out (fortunately, successfully).
