IIRC there was talk at some point of returning bombers and other aircraft landing on the dry salt lakes of Nevada for refueling and what not. Besides that if there was a strike that did take out all suitable US landing fields I'd think they would try to make it to the nearest ally, I'm thinking Cana...
