74. The destination is D = 800 km j ^ where we orient axes so that + y points north and + x points east. This takes two hours, so the (constant) velocity of the plane (relative to the ground) is v pg = (400 km/h) j ^ . This must be the vector sum of the plane’s velocity with respect to the air which has ( x,y ) components (500cos70º, 500sin70º) and the velocity of the air ( wind ) relative to the ground
