Einstein's Riddle

  1. Nov 16, 2005 #1
    Two planes take off at the same exact moment. They are flying across the Atlantic. One leaves New York and is flying to Paris at 500 miles per hour. The other leaves Paris and is flying to New York at only 450 miles per hour ( because of a strong head wind ). Which one will be closer to Paris when they meet?

    P.S. This is not Einstein's by the way, LOL!

    I know! My first response originally moaned about that - and having to switch to Silver - until I realized that Silver doesn't work either. So I just dropped it.
