**Reiny**, Tuesday, November 15, 2011 at 8:05amDraw a vertical line with A the top plane, B the lower plane and C the point on the ground below the planes.

ABC is a straight line.

Let D be the position of the observer on the ground

Let AB = x m

We know:

BC = 6000

∠BDC = 45°, so DC = 6000

∠DAC = 60°

in ∆ADC, tan 60° = (x+6000)/6000

(x+6000)/6000 = √3

x+6000 = 6000√3

x = 6000√3 - 6000 = 4392.3 m
