# Gimli Glider

Aircraft Boeing 767 lose both engines at 45000 feet. The plane captain maintain optimum gliding conditions. Every minute, lose 1870 feet and maintain constant speed 212 knots.

Calculate how long takes to plane from engines failure to hit ground. Calculate how far pilot glide plane.

1 foot = 1 ft = 0.3 m

1 knot = 1.9 km/h
