Malaysian plane is lost - level 2

17-03-2014 07:00

A Malaysian plane disappeared. More than 20 aircraft and 40 ships search the sea for the plane, but no one has found anything yet.

On day three of the search, people thought they found a life raft. Sadly, it was only a cable reel. The search area is widened. As time goes by, it becomes more important to find something of the plane.

The disappearance remains a mystery. No one knows what exactly happened. It is possible that there was a mechanical problem and an explosion. The plane could have been hijacked, as well.

Difficult words: disappear (get lost), reel (wheel for a cable), hijack (someone took control of the plane and flew it somewhere).

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