Hi Jimmie,
In the diagram below the measure of the angle RPT is 69^{o} , the vector PR represents the speed and air direction of the plane and the vector RQ represents the wind. Thus the length of the vector PQ represents the ground speed of the plane and the angle QPT gives the true heading.
Since PT and RQ are parallel the measure of the angle QRP is 180^{o}  69^{o} = 111^{o}. Do you know a trigonometric expression that will allow you to find the length of PQ?
