  1. Sir,
    Going through your website, I noticed that the AJ-2, Navy Aircraft manufactured by North American and could be used as a tanker, is not on your website.
    I was a third crewman on such an aircraft, belonging to VAH-15 and home based at NAS Norfolk, VA
    I am specifically trying to prove that I was on a tanking mission, in 1958, over Texas, refueling two USMC F-8 Crusaders attempting to break a cross country record.
    The record was not broken due to a leaking Quick disconnect fitting to the tanker package. The refueling had to be accomplished utilizing the electric fuel pump verses the high volume hydraulic pump.
    Any record you may have, or could find. on this subject would be appreciated.
    VAH-15 decommissioned in earl 1959,after an AJ-2 crashed into a residence near the runway at NAS Norfolk.
