Quito Landing

Watch the video and then read the description below. Would you describe it the same way?

The plane is descending through low broken cloud. The high rises of Quito city in Ecuador can be seen below. There is a stadium to the right and there are either mountains or volcanoes in the distance. The airport seems to be in the middle of the city. The runway is very short with no room for an overshoot.

About Rachel

I started off my aviation English career in Hong Kong, where I worked as an English specialist with Cathay Pacific. I was responsible for designing and developing aviation English resources for ground crew, cabin crew and pilots. I also co-designed the CX language proficiency test for licensing purposes. In 2008 I moved to Jerez de La Frontera in Spain where I headed the aviation English department at Flight Training Europe. I developed foundation aviation English courses to prepare abinitio pilots for their ATPL courses. The ICAO English proficiency test which I designed was the first to be approved by the UKCAA. I am now in charge of content development at Practice ICAO English. We provide interactive and engaging E-learning aviation English courses, as well as many free lessons for our growing community of pilots and controllers.
