It looks like 71466, which would make it 57-1466, except the KC-135 with that serial was never built. Anyone know what the full serial is? Thanks!

If 57-1466 was written off, is it possible this tail number was painted incorrectly when the plane went in for paint?

Well... According to the Scramble DB, 57-1466 was built as a KC-135A, flying with the 7th BW. However, this plane was written off March 8, 1960, so it seems unlikely you saw this plane at PHX...

both the last 2 numbers are identical.

OK, the list I looked at showed it as "canx". But that fits, and it clearly isn't 57-1466 despite it looking very much like it.

It is 1466, not 86 or 56. Damn clear as day to me.
