# Gimli Glider

Aircraft Boeing 767 lose both engines at 42000 feet. The plane captain maintains optimum gliding conditions. Every minute, lose 1910 feet and maintain constant speed 211 knots.

Calculate how long it takes for a plane to hit the ground from engine failure. Calculate how far the pilot glides the plane.

1 foot = 1 ft = 0.3 m

1 knot = 1.9 km/h
