The plane is 115 pixels long.. it moves 29-30 pixels per frame which is about .2345 times its length... NTSC regulated frame rate is 30 video frames per second.. The computed speed will be .2435x(length)x30. if the fuselage is 5 feet long....36.3 fps or 24 mph (ground speed) if the fuselage is 6 feet long.... 43 fps or 29 mph ..Wind effect not recorded.. but substantial!
