Plane crashed in France - level 2
A plane which was flying from Barcelona to Düsseldorf crashed in the French Alps last Tuesday. Nobody survived of the 144 passengers and 6 crew on board.
Among the passengers were 16 school children and two teachers from a German school. It is also thought that two babies were on board the aeroplane.
The German airline says that it believes that the crash was an accident, but it is still working to establish the exact cause.
Difficult words: crew (a group of people who work on an aircraft), establish (to find out), cause (a reason).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
It seems that many planes have crashed recently, doesn't it?
