Boeing on fire – level 2
A 777 Boeing was flying from Singapore Changi Airport to Milan. Two hours into the flight, the pilot received an engine oil-warning message. He turned the plane back and started dumping fuel.
Shortly after landing, the engine caught fire and people captured the scene on video and shared it on social media. None of the 222 passengers and 19 crew on board were injured. All of them were safely evacuated and taken to the airport terminal by bus.
Singapore Airlines is one of the safest airlines in the world. People praised the pilot for doing a good job.
Difficult words: dump (drop), fuel (petrol), praise (say that somebody did something well).
