 T O P I C    R E V I E W nicholas Posted - 05/24/2011 : 19:35:17 An airplance is traveling on a 500km trip. After 150km the pilot notes that the plance is 20km off course. How much should the heading be corrected to then fly straight to the destination? Assume there is no wind during the plane's flight.It seems simple but I can't solve it.Please help.Thank you. 4   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) Admin Posted - 12/29/2011 : 13:50:12 quote:Originally posted by the_hill1962That is a nice diagram!
