I would assume that they are pretty much in and out all the time.
No, I think they have a schedule and I think it is every six hours. I am not sure if I am understanding it correctly but it looks like right now it takes them about five hours just to get there, after taking off.
I was reading about what they do with those C-130s. They take the entire center of the plane where you'd normally have cargo or people, and turn it into one huge gas tank.
