Plane speed = 584 mph = 856 feet per second
Typing speed = ~40 words per minute = ~240 characters per minute = 4 characters per second.
Therefore 856 fps / 4 cps = 214 feet per character.
So each character I'm typing here would be 214 feet apart if they were to fall to the ground as I type them right now. The previous sentence would be stretched out 24,466 feet or over 4 ½ miles. Everything you’ve just read would span 28 miles!
