It flies away for 425/212 hours and files back for another 425/305 hours. During that time it covers 425*2km. So the average speed is overall distance divided by the overall time and equals to 425*2/(425/212+425/305)=2/(1/212+1/305)=2*212*305/(305+212)=129320/517=250+70/517 which is around 250.1 km/h
