At an airport, a flight controller was in a tower 40m above the ground. When she first observed a plane it was at an angle of elevation of 12 (degrees) from her line of sight and flying at a constant altitude (height)

The plane had a constant speed of 360km/h

Eight seconds later the plane flew directly overhead.

On reaching the tower, the plane climbed for the next 15 seconds, without changing speed, to reach a new altitude of 1500 meters above the ground.

What was the plane's angle of ascent during this time?
