They once hung a JT9D (I think) from one of the pylons on a B-52, replacing the two existing engines. This was during testing for the Boeing C-5 proposal. There's a picture in "Boeing - Planemaker to the World". IIRC, the engine had as much thrust as three of the original B-52 engines.

IIRC, this is how the JT9D was tested for the 747 program.
