Canada Plane Crash – level 1

22-05-2020 07:00

The Royal Canadian Air Forces want to make Canadians happy. The coronavirus is in Canada. People need to have some fun.

Pilots fly over the country in aerobatic planes. They make tricks with planes. People come to watch the tricks.

An accident happens at an airport in British Columbia, Canada. Two planes take off. One of the planes starts to burn. One pilot gets out of the plane. He uses a parachute.

The plane falls. It hits a garden. The house starts to burn. People run out of the house. They try to stop the fire.

One pilot dies in the crash. The second pilot ends up in hospital. Doctors say that his injuries are not very serious.

Difficult words: aerobatic plane (a plane that does trick for sports or for fun), take off (when a plane leaves the ground), parachute (a device that looks like a bag, and when a person jumps out of a plane, it opens and the person can land safely).

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