When launching a large Alpha strike, it can sometime take several turns for all the aircraft to become airborne.  Those aircraft that take off first and hover above the airfield waiting for the others.  How much fuel point do they consume each turn they wait, 1 or 2 fuel points?

Ok, I thought so.


An Alpha Strike is when all aircraft are launch in one big giant airstrike instead of being broken up into waves.

Off topic: same term is used in Star Fleet Battles to describe a ship unleashing all available weapons onto another.

Yep, same thing.  In the US military it's pretty much a generic language for unleashing everything all at once but it's most commonly use with ships and aircraft.
