Plane’s engine is on fire - level 2
A passenger was on a plane from Spain to Russia. The plane started to shake immediately after takeoff, and flames burst out of the plane’s engine.
A woman filmed the terrifying moment. The plane had to turn around back to Barcelona. However, it didn’t land immediately. It spent an hour in the air dumping fuel. The pilots turned off the engine shortly after the incident.
Difficult words: burst (explode), terrifying (scary), dump (to put something away).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
