    •  I'd figure (6+ / 0-)

      Fuel burn was roughly 4000 gallons per hour at cruise. Cruise speed would be roughly 450 nautical milers per hour.

      Call it 1000 gallons for every 100 miles you want to travel,  just to make it simple.

      The problem is, every large runway in every NATO country (Europe) would probably be gone, which makes it problematic.

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
