I went to USC with a guy who was with this unit, detached informally from US Army Air Force and later had his deployment record "altered" to skip over that period.  He kept all his clearances.

 

I also worked with a guy who did "the right thing", resigned and flew for the Israeli Air Force in 1947 .  He was "rewarded" for his honest years later when the US government denied him a security clearance for serving in a foreign armed force.  He did manage to keep his MP43 and used it as his side arm while flying [later] for the US Navy off a carrier during the Korean war. Said it really beat a .45 pistol.

B50 with air refueling mods?  Looks like a concept for the KC97 as modified by the Air National Guard .  The Guard pulled jet engines off bone yard B50s and installed them on their KC97s in order to keep up with jet fighter refueling without having to refuel in a dive configuration.  The KC97 wings were just like the B50 down to piping for the add on jet engines.
