Complicated landing in England - level 2

Complicated landing in England - level 2

15-01-2015 07:00

A person filmed a video of a plane in northern England. The plane was landing when the weather was really bad.

Strong winds swayed the plane from side to side. Luckily, the skilful pilots kept control of the plane and landed it safely. Even without the strong winds, this airport is very hard to land at.

The 60-miles-per-hour winds (97 kilometres per hour) which hit the north of England caused a wave of travel problems.

Difficult words: sway (to move), skilful (very good), wave (many things happening in a row).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
