Lagoon Landing – level 1

03-10-2018 07:00

The Chuuk Island is in Micronesia. A plane wants to land on the island. It is a Boeing 737. The plane does not land at an airport. It crash-lands in the lagoon.

There are 40–50 passengers on board. All of them survive. All of the crew survives, too.

Difficult words: lagoon (a lake that is seawater and is separate from the ocean), survive (to live after something bad happens), crew (the people who work on an aeroplane).

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