Men fly over Dubai - level 2

Men fly over Dubai - level 2

20-05-2015 07:00

High up above Dubai, two men jumped out of a helicopter wearing wings powered by jets. Then they flew over the city for ten minutes and did dives, did acrobatic stunts, and held their hands out in front of them to show a superman pose.

After ten minutes of flying, they used parachutes to come back gently to the ground. This was the first time that this happened in Dubai.

Difficult words: jet (a big and strong engine for flying), dive (to fall down gracefully), acrobatic stunt (using physical skills to do something dangerous).

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