To refer to both Gazz and Helen's posts about Empire vs. Vulture on the correct answer, both could essentially be right, depending on exactly which question you are asking. Empire's answer was for "Approximate Total Distance TRAVELLED During the Scene", which they got to be 27.86 miles. Vulture calculated in the approximate remainder of runway left after the plane stopped travelling, to calculate the length of the RUNWAY, which gave them an answer of 28.829 miles. If you wanted to argue, however, Vulture estimated the remaining runway to be about 0.086 miles, so the answers are still out at a difference of 0.883 miles. One differing factor is the timeline; Empire said the plane stopped at 12 minutes 35 seconds, while Vulture said they stopped after 13 minutes 3 seconds. All in all though, both answers will only give us an approximate distance (as factors have to be assumed in much of the calculations). If you wanted to be happy, one could average the answers out (Empire's answer would have to have the additional runway length
