Yep, it was the 1966 accident. The mid-air refueling jogged my memory.

I've known about this for years. 

 

By the way flinty tell me how it's unsafe for me to have a firearm by my side. You Dodged my question.

 

I'm sure you knew about it but the story is about a declassified document giving official information on it.

By 1958 SAC peaked at 2,500 aircraft, and by 1963 it had ~650 B-52s operating from 38 bases in the US, Pacific, Greenland and Europe. 42 squadrons in all, and a sh*tload of nuclear bombs, cruise missiles etc.
