When the elevation was 60, distance of the point of observation to the point on the ground
below the plane = 1xcot60 = 1/sqrt(3) km
 
Similarly when the angle becomes 30, distance becomes = 1xcot30 = sqrt(3) km
 
So, distance travelled = sqrt 3 -1/sqrt 3 km = 2/sqrt3 km
 
time taken = 10sec = 10/3600 hr
 
hence speed = distance / time = 2x3600/10x sqrt(3) = 720/sqrt (3) km/hr = 415.7 km/hr
