Special flight over the English Channel - level 1
A pilot flies from England to France. He flies over the English Channel. He flies in a not normal plane. He flies in an electric plane. He is the first person to do this.
The flight takes him 37 minutes. His plane is 590 kilograms heavy. It is 6 metres long. It can fly for 50 minutes. It is called the Airbus E-Fan.
There is a little problem. Another pilot says that he did this, too – that he flew over the English Channel before. However, both flights are important.
Difficult words: flight (the action of flying), did (past of “do”), flew (past of “fly”).
