China makes UFO – level 2

19-06-2023 07:00

The world’s first manned flying saucer inspired by UFOs completed its first flight in China.

It took Shenzhen UFO Science and Technology more than three years to develop the vehicle. The saucer is designed for tourism and performances, and it offers a special and futuristic experience. It looks like a UFO, and it can take off and land on both land and water. It is unclear when exactly it will be possible to carry passengers other than the pilot.

This important moment in aviation technology shows how transportation may look in the future and it marks a big achievement in the field.

Difficult words: manned (with a human pilot), aviation (flying), achievement (something what a person or company does successfully).

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

What advantages does the "UFO" offer over traditional forms of aviation?
