Air Show in Moscow – level 3

Near Moscow, Russia, two people, who were performing in an air show died, when their An-2 biplane crashed. The people were flying the plane in a swooping arc when the wings suddenly hit the ground.

Even though the crash was in close proximity to spectators, no one was hurt. Local police began an investigation into what had happened.

Difficult words: An-2 biplane (a small, older Russian plane with two sets of wings and one engine), swooping arc (move downwards quickly in the shape of a half circle), close proximity (close to others), spectator (someone who is watching something).
