Plane Sinks – level 3

30-08-2021 15:00

People submerged a Jordanian Airforce Hercules transporter plane in the Gulf of Aqaba to create new coral reefs to attract scuba divers.

Prior to the sinking ceremony, which hundreds of people attended, people removed all fuel and hazardous materials from the plane.

One Danish tourist said that there are already many great diving sites in Jordan, but for it to have a plane is something ‘very good’.

Difficult words: submerge (sink), prior to (before), hazardous (dangerous).
