are

t (s) 9 10 11

α 54.80◦ 54.06◦ 53.34◦

β 65.59◦ 64.59◦ 63.62◦

calculate the speed v of the plane and the climb angle γ at t = 10 s.

The coordinates of the plane can be shown to be,

x = a*((tan β)/(tan β − tan α))

y = a*((tan α tan β)/(tan β − tan α))

No figure here, so I'm not sure of the 3-D layout.
