Air Show in Moscow – level 2

12-09-2017 07:00

Near Moscow, Russia, two people were flying in a biplane for an air show. They were flying the plane in a swooping arc when the wings hit the ground. Both of them died.

The crash was close to spectators, but none of them was hurt. Local police started investigating what happened.

Difficult words: biplane (a plane with two sets of wings), swooping arc (move down quickly in a circular shape), spectator (someone watching a show).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
