Détails:
The KC-135 was engaged in a low-level practice refueling display routine when it encountered the wake turbulence of a B-52.
Upon encountering wake turbulence, the aircraft performed an uncommanded 80 degree roll to left, stalling engines 1 and 2. The crew recovered to a wings level attitude however they were too low to recover and the aircraft crash-landed in open area next to base operations. She slid through a fence, killing a crewmember who had decided not to fly on that aircraft mission on that day. The mishap aircraft continued through open field before impacting a weather radar tower which split open the fuselage at the wing root.
