|dw:1436343667526:dw| The above drawing will give you the answer - you can use the tan function to find h NOTE: it is a very minor approximation because the plane is 15m away from overhead in the drawing. However - you can be confident that the error will be so small as to be negligible in this case

|dw:1436343883202:dw| The above will give the precise answer - use the tan function again But it will give essentially the same as the first drawing.
