Women in the air - level 2

Women in the air - level 2

22-07-2013 06:00

101 Russian women jumped from planes to perform a beautiful flower in the air.

They set a new record for the most female skydivers in the air. But a new record wasn't their only reason for the jump. They dedicated it to their former captain who died last year in California. They left one space for her in the centre of this flower.

It is not easy to jump and create a flower in the air when there are so many people. The women had to practise a lot.

Interesting words: skydiver (person who jumps from planes), dedicate (give), former (of the past).

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