Horsemeat Helicopter - level 1
This news is from Russia. People want to set a new record. They make a helicopter model. This helicopter model has horsemeat on it.
It is 3.5 metres long, 1.8 metres high, and weighs 120 kilograms. It is on top of a truck. People move it to the town’s square. Many people are at the square. Sadly, the people must not eat the meat. The town’s authorities say that it is not safe.
Why did the people build the helicopter? It is strange, isn’t it? Well, there are two reasons for it. Horsemeat is typical in that part of Russia, and people make helicopters in the town.
Difficult words: weigh (to be heavy), authorities (the bosses of a place), strange (not normal).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
