Distances at Desert One question

I'm looking for some fairly small-scale information about the debacle at Desert One, when the black market fuel tanker showed up. Is there any way I can find out how far off that tanker was when it was spotted? How close did the jeep and KLRs get to it before it was hit with the Red-Eye missile? Was it still approaching?
I've always wondered what the fuck those poor bastards must have been thinking when they drove up and saw an MC-130 full of Achilles coming out of it.
Thanks so much for any help.
