Plane over a canal - level 1
A pilot does something dangerous. He is 57 years old. He flies over a canal in Greece. He performs special tricks.
The canal is 6.4 kilometres long. It is around 21 metres wide. The plane’s wings are 8 metres long. There is not much space for the plane!
The pilot flies under a bridge at the end. He flies in a circle, too.
Difficult words: canal (long and narrow space in the ground for water and ships), perform (do), wing (long part of a plane that helps to keep the plane in the air).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
