Plane on a Motorway – level 1

30-10-2018 07:00

A plane lands on a motorway. This is not normal. It is a crash landing. The motorway is in California. The plane has one engine. It is a vintage plane.

The plane is on fire after it lands. Luckily, people save the pilot. We do not know the cause of this incident.

Difficult words: engine (the part of a plane or a car which makes it move), vintage (old and high in quality), cause (the reason), incident (when something happens).

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