    Your spread sheet format is great! I herewith give credit and intend to use it  for my calculations. John Karl's calculation layout is another good model to follow so nothing is omitted.

    I did this exercise just to see if I remembered how to do it. It looks like I got the same answer as others (I assume the 39 08.9N is a typo). See attached. Btw, if you read the note at the bottom of the problem statement it states that the date is in the form DD/MM/YY so 12/05/96 is May 12, 1996. Less obvious, the note states times are in Zulu. On the other hand, they do label the time ZT, Zone Time.
