Yellow plane on a road - level 2

Yellow plane on a road - level 2

11-10-2013 06:00

A pilot and a customer, who wanted to buy the plane, were flying in Florida when the plane suddenly lost power.

It was going down and the pilot had to make a judgment. He did. He knew that they could not make it to the airport so he decided to land the plane on a road. It was the best option.

The plane was able to take off shortly after the emergency landing so the two men flew to the airport to check the plane.

Difficult words: judgment (had to decide), take off (get up into the air), emergency landing (when you have to land because of some trouble).

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