New Supersonic Plane – level 1

21-11-2017 07:00

Boom is an American company. It wants to make a new plane. The plan is to have a plane in 2023.

The plane will be supersonic. It will fly from London to New York in three hours. The flight ticket will not be extremely expensive. It will cost as much as a standard business class ticket.

This is possible because the plane will be 75 per cent less expensive than the Concord.

Difficult words: supersonic (faster than sound), possible (if something is possible, it can happen), Concord (a plane that was supersonic and was very expensive to buy a ticket).

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