Largest Aircraft in the World – level 1

Largest Aircraft in the World – level 1

22-08-2016 15:00

This news is about an aircraft. It is the biggest aircraft in the world. It is as long as a football pitch. It is as tall as six double-decker buses.

It costs 25 million pounds to make. It can carry heavier loads than a jumbo jet, but it is quieter and eco-friendlier. It can stay in the air for up to five days. The makers think that it is the future of flying.

It flies for the first time. It is in the air for two hours. It goes up to 914 metres.

Difficult words: load (something that you carry), eco-friendly (friendly to the planet, not making the planet dirty).

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