We used to pride ourselves on being able to "turn" a plane that was stopping for fuel with less than ten minutes block time. Seaboard- World's Operations Manual specified the plane must remain on the blocks for at least one hour after landing at near max landing weight. That requirement ruined our "block-times" for fuel stops, but SW pilots were certain the brakes were cooled down before starting to taxi out. Lou.
