(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An aircraft passes directly over you with a speed of 900 km/h at an altitude of 10,000 m. What is the angular velocity of the aircraft (relative to you) when directly overhead? Three minutes later?

2. Relevant equations

Where were studying center of mass and Moment of inertia.

3. The attempt at a solution

No idea, how to approach this question, Aircraft is flying straight, will there even by any angular velocity?
