US Plane Engine Fire – level 1

26-02-2021 07:00

A Boeing 777 plane takes off from an airport in Denver, Colorado, US. Something happens only a few minutes after the take-off. One of the engines has problems. A plane cannot fly without engines.

Some passengers see smoke and fire. They are very scared. They think that the plane will crash.

The pilot returns to the airport. He lands safely. All people are happy. 241 people are on board. They are all okay.

Pieces of the engine fall down. They fall down in gardens and streets of Denver. People must not touch them. The police must find out what happens.

Boeing has many 777 planes. Boeing wants to check all of them.

Difficult words: engine (a machine that makes cars, planes, or other things move), passenger (a person who travels somewhere and he is not the driver), check (to look at something and see if it is okay).

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