One plane flies straight east at an altitude of 31,000 feet. A second plane is flying west at an altitude of 13,000 feet on a course that lies directly below that of the first plane and directly above the straight road from Thomasville to Johnsburg. As the first plane passes over Thomasville, the second is passing over Johnsburg. At that instant both planes spot a beacon next to the road between Thomasville to Johnsburg. The angle of depression from the first plane to the beacon is 62°, and the angle of depression from the second plane to the beacon is 34°. How far is Thomasville from Johnsburg?
