If the speed of the plane was 450km/h, the time of fall would remain the same.

Work Step by Step

Increasing the speed of the plane would only increase the horizontal component of the bundle's motion. Only the vertical component of the bundle's velocity will effect the travel time. Increasing the plane's velocity will only increase the distance that the bundle travels, not the amount of time it spends in air.
