Dramatic Airplane Incident – level 1

24-10-2018 15:00

A plane wants to land in San Francisco. It gets closer and closer to the airport. However, it is not getting closer to the runway. It is getting closer to a taxiway.

This is a terrible mistake. There are four planes on the taxiway. The lives of many people are in danger. Luckily, the plane avoids the other planes. Nobody is hurt.

Difficult words: runway (a road at an airport where planes land and take off), taxiway (a road for planes to move around an airport), avoid (move away from, not hit).

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