Uh-oh! Smith Airlines flight No. 250 is having a rough ride as they hit some turbulence on their way to Washington D.C. They must change course in order to avoid it, but don't know how many extra kilometers they will have to travel in order to do so. Will they have enough fuel to make the detour and arrive safely in Washington D.C?
