Speed not equal?

First of all, this didn’t seem to be a duplicate even though I’m not good at using the Search feature.

When I try to escort people, I often see that they are flying at 200 knots (for example).
I then follow them at a faster speed to catch up with them, but they keep flying further and further away from me even if I fly considerably faster than them and they stay at the same speed.
This is annoying when you try to escort someone, and I need help with this.
Thank you!

The speed you see is ground speed. Altitude will also play into the speed.

But what if we are at the same altitude?

You have to match your own ground speed to intercept.

Ok, that should help, thanks!
