Special Emergency Landing – level 3

19-05-2020 07:00

A single-engine plane was carrying five people in New Jersey, USA, including students from a nearby skydiving school, when it ran out of power.

The small skydiving plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a highway grass-covered median.

The Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating the incident in which only the instructor sustained minor injuries.

Difficult words: median (the land between the lanes of a highway), aviation (relating to flying and aircraft), minor (small).
