The aircraft crashed around 11:00 hours 6 miles out of Charleston AFB. The pilot, First Lieutenant Tortsen K. Arnold, and his back-seat IP, Lieutenant Colonel Gregory W. Lewis, were attempting an IFR emergency landing on runway 15. The engine began to fail while flying in the warning areas east of Charleston and quit totally on short final. The weather precluded an SFO landing from high key. The official cause of the accident was 'undetermined' but most likely fuel contamination from the fuel received earlier from a KC-135 AAR as determined by the investigation board. Both pilots ejected safely.
