Thanks for that info.

It looks like one refueling would get them to the coast.

Length: 64.8 ft (17.1 meters)
Height: 16.8 ft (4.4 meters)
Rotary Diameter: 53.7 ft (14.1 meters)
Speed: 184 mph
Maximum Takeoff Weight: 22,000 lbs
Range: 450 nautical miles

The midair-refueling looks extremely dangerous.
