Had to refuel a SR-71 once that came in for an airshow. Had to get drums of JP-7 shipped in.

First ( and only ) time i saw the pilot and back seater leave the airplane without benefit of a ladder. My office was just off the flightline and I watched it land and taxi in. All of a sudden it stopped short; the canopies opened and the two pilots came out head first.

As they were taxiing; the leaking fuel got sucked into the intakes and gave them a fire warning indication. They didn't wait around to see if it was real.
