Two companies have just started a round-the-clock air taxi service between Rome and Milan. They use the same flight path and fly at constant speeds at different altitudes. Planes owned by the company Alpha-Air take off from Rome every 10 minutes and take 90 minutes to reach Milan. Planes owned by the company Beta-Air take off every 5 minutes and take 60 minutes to reach Milan. Captain Johnston, who flies for Beta-Air, takes off from Rome 5 minutes after the previous Alpha-Air flight has departed. How many Alpha-Air planes (flying from Rome to Milan) will Captain Johnston have passed as he lands in Milan?
