Plane crash in Russia – level 1
A fighter jet crashes outside Moscow. It is an SU-27 fighter jet. It is not carrying any weapons.
The pilot dies. He does not have time to leave. He flies the jet away from people.
People are investigating this. They think it is something technical. They will stop flying all fighter jets of this same type.
Difficult words: fighter jet (a fast plane for war), weapon (things like bombs or guns), investigate (try to understand what happened).
