Charlie is at a small airfield watching for the approach of a small plane with engine trouble. He sees the plane at an angle of elevation of 32 . At the same time, the pilot radios Charlie and reports the plane’s altitude is 1,700 feet. Charlie’s eyes are 5.2 feet from the ground. Draw a sketch of this situation (you do not need to submit the sketch). Find the ground distance from Charlie to the plane. Explain your work.
It's a good thing that you explained your error. I had a really good come back that I was going to lay on you.
waht do you mean that charlie is 5.2 feet off the ground?

x = 1,694 / tan 32 = 2,935.5 ft

From the picture and my short calculation, seem like you have abudance guidance :)
