- Because of the field elevation, the pressure altitude, the density altitude, and the F-117's long takeoff run, it could not take off with a full load of fuel,

- The first rendezvous with tankers was around 100 miles North of Khamis (that's about 25 minutes),

- The second (& third) rendezvous with tankers was just outside Iraq, 

- F-117's were over Iraq itself for around 60-70 minutes,

- The total mission time, on average for an F-117 during 'Desert Storm' was about 5.5 hours.
