Plane crashes in England – level 1

28-08-2015 07:00

This news is from England. There is an air show. A pilot flies a military plane. This plane is old.

The pilot wants to do a trick. This trick is called the “loop the loop”. In this trick, the plane makes a circle in the air.

The pilot does this, but the engine stops. This is a big problem. The plane goes down. It crashes on a road. It explodes. Seven people die.

Difficult words: military (for war), engine (a part of the plane which makes it move; it is also in your car).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
