The story is that the left main tires blew and 1 wheel came off puncturing the fuel tank from Fort Worth Carswell. That's all the fuel coming out back. They flew on to Ewards AFB with gear down after about 7 inflight refuelings and landed grinding metal. They didn't use JATO on that aircraft. The afteburner lit the fuel off. They are very lucky they didn't crash like the Concorde.
