A 777 Boeing is in the air. It is flying from Singapore to Milan. The pilot receives an engine oil-warning message.

He turns the plane back. He starts to let out fuel. He lands in Singapore. Soon, the engine catches fire. People film it. They put the video on the Internet.

There are 241 people on the plane. All of them are fine. The pilot does a good job.

Difficult words: receive (get), engine (fuel goes to the engine where it burns and works the engine), fuel (petrol, energy).
