Descripción:
The KC-135 entered considerable yaw attitude after takeoff and the crew attempted to return to the airport. The crew entry door was reportedly jettisoned after which the plane rolled to an inverted attitude and crashed into the 2000 Block of Piatt street at 20th Street.
A preceding B-52 may have blown a drag chute from a F-105 Thunderchief against the departing KC-135. The drag chute had been accidently left on the runway.
