Draw yourself a figure with two triangles. Both have an apex at your location and a common vertical side going striaght up from there a distance h, where h is the altitude. In one mionute, the plane flys horizontally a distance V t = 550 mile/hr*1/60 hr = 9.17 miles.

h cot 16 - h cot 57 = 9.17 miles

Solve for h.

I get h = 3.23 miles.
