Two planes take off at the same time from an airport. The first plane is flying at 260 miles per hour on a bearing of S 45.0° E. The second plane is flying in the direction S 45.0°W at 295 miles per hour. If there are no wind currents blowing, how far apart are they after 2 hours? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
