The distance between aerodromes A and B is 1000 Nautical Miles. At 09:00 an aircraft leaves for B with a speed of 300 Nautical miles per hour. At 09:30 another aircraft leaves for B from A with a speed of 400 Nautical miles per hour. At what approximate time will the second aircraft overtake the first aircraft?
A. 10:55
B. 11:15
C. 10:42
D. None of the above
