Well here's a question. Do they try to put tankers near pipeline depots? Kinder Morgan runs a pipeline from LA (I think) to Nellis, with an outlet also in Barstow.
If Edwards has a tap since the pipeline goes right by it, then it would be a good place to top off. That is, the planes could be in transit. This is all speculation on my part, other than the documented outlets.
The economics of pipelines is pretty interesting, though a bit off topic. Pipelines that are not owned by the petro companies carry fuel from many vendors, hence they are common carriers, which in turn means eminent domain can be used in their routing since it is for a public good.
