Excellent Online Video For ELL’s About Plane Crash Into Hudson


I’ve posted earlier about a good lesson for English Language Learners related to the landing of the US Airways plane into the Hudson River.

Today, The Wall Street Journal published an excellent video about it that’s perfect for ELL’s. It has good footage of the plane, along with an animation. But, most importantly, it includes the audio of the communication between the pilot and the air traffic controller along with the transcript showing-up on the screen (very clearly) as the words are spoken.
