Determine the Thermal Efficiency

An aircraft is flying at true airspeed of 270m/s, each jet engine producing 10,000 lb max thrust for a fuel flow of 0.3 kg/s. Noting that the lower calorific value of AVTUR (Jetfuel) is 42 MJ/kg, determine the engine's overall thermal efficiency in this operating condition.
