In this episode of The A to Z English Podcast, Jack is joined by Layla, Hendrik, May, and Ana Maria. Jack reads three crazy airplane stories and our guest hosts have to guess which one of the stories is a lie. Play along and see if you can guess which story is false.
Story 1: Miracle on the Hudson
On January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549, piloted by Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and First Officer Jeffrey Skiles, struck a flock of geese shortly after takeoff from New York’s LaGuardia Airport. Both engines lost power, and Captain Sullenberger made the heroic decision to ditch the aircraft in the Hudson River. All 155 passengers and crew members were safely evacuated from the sinking plane, and the event became known as the “Miracle on the Hudson.”
Story 2: DB Cooper’s Disappearance
On November 24, 1971, a man who would later become known as “D.B. Cooper” hijacked Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 305, a Boeing 727, and demanded a ransom before parachuting out of the plane over rugged terrain in the Pacific Northwest. Cooper’s true identity and whereabouts remain a mystery to this day, making it one of the most famous unsolved mysteries in aviation history.
Story 3: Amelia Earhart’s Return
In 1945, several years after her disappearance in 1937, famous aviator Amelia Earhart was found alive on a remote Pacific island. She had reportedly survived by catching fish and coconuts and had been rescued by a passing ship. Her miraculous return was widely celebrated, and she went on to live a long and happy life.
