Plane’s engine is on fire – level 1

24-09-2014 07:00

A plane flies from Spain to Russia. In the beginning, it starts to shake. People can see fire from one engine. A passenger films it. It is scary.

The plane turns around. It flies back to Barcelona. However, it cannot land immediately. It is too heavy. It lets out some fuel.

Difficult words: engine (machine which moves a vehicle), immediately (right away), fuel (liquid energy for a vehicle or machine).

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

Are you afraid of flying?
