**MathMate**, Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 10:52pmAssuming the distances are measured at sea-level, then the altitude of the plane does not affect the distance between the two ships as long as they are navigating both at sea level.

Since they form a right angled triangle with angle P, we can find the distance AB using Pythagoras theorem thus:

AB=√(PA²+PB²)
