It’s an aeroplane going to Speke. No, it’s going to Canada from Manchester, or maybe to New York.
It’s left from the airport and is now in Pennsylvania.
All the children and the pilot are on the plane.
The children all go to school together – they are all different ages.
They’re going on holiday, on a school trip. Maybe they’re emigrating.
There’s people waiting for them when they land – a boy and their aunties and uncles.
They can hear the engine and children going up and down to the toilet.
They’ve got to be strapped in their seat or they can’t take off.
Suddenly the plan explodes – bang!
