Plane crashes in England – level 2

28-08-2015 07:00

There was an air show in England. A pilot was flying a vintage military plane and he tried to do a loop the loop.

Unfortunately, his engine stopped. He tried to get to the airport, but he did not make it. He crashed on a busy road. There was a huge explosion. Seven people died.

Difficult words: vintage (old), loop the loop (a vertical circle in the air), huge (very big).

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