Can You Get Electrocuted On A Flight?

A Boeing 777 is flying due north at v=900 km/h v=900\text{ km/h} (typical cruising speed) and at an altitude where the vertical component of the Earth's magnetic field is B=50 μTB=50~\mu T. The wingspan of the 777 is about 60 m. Determine the induced voltage in Volts across the tips of the wings.
