14th July 1995 is a day I shall never forget. On that day, I stared death in the face.
Our flight was due to leave at 11 a.m., and I arrived at the airport quite early. We got on the plane at 10:30 and the plane took off on time. The air-hostesses were just beginning to serve our lunch when the plane began to shake.
At first, we thought we were flying in bad weather. We were told to stay seated and fasten our seat belts. Then suddenly the plane seemed to dip. We realised we were in danger. Many people screamed in panic. We all thought we had only minutes to live.
Then, just when we had given up all hope, we felt the plane slowly gained height. A few minutes later the pilot announced that everything was all right.
We were all overjoyed and relieved. One hour later we landed safely. It was the most frightening experience of my life.
Một câu chuyển kể
Ngày 14/7/1945 là một ngày tôi sẽ không bao giờ quên. Vào ngày đó, tôi đối mặt với tử thần.
Chuyến bay của chúng tôi theo kế hoạch sẽ khởi hành lúc 11 giờ sáng, tôi đến sân bay rất sớm. Chúng tôi lên máy bay lúc 10.30 và máy bay cất cánh đúng giờ. Các cô tiếp viên vừa bắt đầu phục vụ bữa trưa thì máy bay bắt đầu chao đảo.
Thoạt đầu chúng tôi tường mình đang bay trong thời tiết xấu. Chúng tôi được yêu cầu ngồi yên và thắt dây an toàn. Thình lình máy bay hình như lao xuống. Chúng tôi nhận thấy minh đang gặp nguy hiểm. Nhiều người kêu thét lên hoảng sợ. Tất cả chúng tôi đều nghĩ rằng mình chỉ còn sống vài phút nừa thôi.
Rồi ngay khi chúng tôi hoàn toàn tuyệt vọng, chúng tôi cảm thấy máy bay dần dần lấy lại độ cao. Vài phút sau viên phi công thông báo là mọi việc đã ổn. Tất cả chúng tôi đều vui mừng nhẹ nhõm. Một giờ sau máy bay hạ cánh an toàn. Đó là một sự việc khủng khiếp nhất trong đời tôi.
