Dramatic Airplane Incident – level 2

24-10-2018 15:00

In 2017, an incident happened at the San Francisco Airport, and people released a report about it just recently.

An airplane was approaching the airport to land when the pilot mistook the runway for a taxiway with four airplanes already sitting there! Luckily, the pilot managed to avoid the other planes but with only a few feet between them!

Difficult words: release (show people), approach (get closer), taxiway (a road for planes to move around an airport), avoid (get away from).

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