An aircraft with mass of $400,000 \mathrm{~kg}$ cruises at $240 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$ at an altitude of $10 \mathrm{~km}$. Its lift to drag ratio at cruise is 15. Assuming $g$ as $9.81 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}$, the power (in $\mathrm{MW}$ ) needed for it to cruise is_____________ (accurate to two decimal places).
