Lucky landing in Brazil

A Brazilian plane has a problem. Its front wheels are not working. The plane must make an emergency landing.

It is too heavy. The pilot must make the plane lighter. He lets some fuel out of it. The plane lands on the ground. It lands on the back wheels. Everything is fine. Nobody is injured.

The plane can get on fire. Firefighters spray the plane with foam. The foam stops the fire. The accident is a problem. It blocks other planes. Many planes must wait to land or to fly.

Difficult words: emergency landing (landing when a plane has some problems), fuel (energy for a plane), be injured (to have problems with the body), foam (water with bubbles).
