Complicated landing in England – level 1

15-01-2015 07:00

This news is from England. The weather is not good there. The wind is very strong. A plane is landing. It is difficult for the plane because of the wind.

The plane moves from side to side. Luckily, the pilots are good. They keep control of the plane. They land it safely.

The wind blows at the speed of 60 miles per hour (97 kilometres per hour). It complicates transportation.

Difficult words: land (to get back on the ground), luckily (when something good happens), blow (to move).

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

Are you afraid of flying?
