An airplane, which was flying from Moscow, crashed at a Russian airport. The moment of the impact was captured on security cameras.

The plane couldn’t land its first time. When it tried to land a second time, it lost altitude and hit the runway. All 50 people on board were killed. One of them was British.

The cause of the crash is being investigated.

Difficult words: impact (moment when it crashed), altitude (height), runway (a long road on which planes land and take off).

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