  First Flight第一次坐飞机

  Mr. Johnson had never been up in an aeroplane(n.飞机) before and he had read a lot about air accidents(n.意外), so one day when a friend offered to take him for a ride in his own small phane, Mr. Johnson was very worried about accepting. Finally, however, his friend persuaded(v.劝告,说服) him that it was very safe, and Mr. Johnson boarded the plane.

  约翰逊先生从前未乘过飞机,他读过许多关于飞行事故的报道。所以,有一天一位朋友邀请他乘自己的小飞机飞行时,约翰逊先生非常担心,不敢接受。不过,由于朋友不断保证说飞行是很安全的,约翰逊先生终于被说服了,登上了飞机。

  His friend started the engine and began to taxi onto the runway of the airport. Mr. Johnson had heard that the most dangerous part of a flight were the take-off (起飞)and the landing, so he was extremely(adv.及其地) frightened and closed his eyes.

  他的朋友启动引擎开始在机场跑道上滑行。约翰逊先生听说飞行中最危险的是起飞与降落,所以他吓得紧闭双眼。

  After a minute or two he opened them again, looked out of (向外看) the window of the plane, and said to his friend, "Look at those people down there. They look as small as ants, don't they?"

  过了一两分钟,他睁开双眼朝窗外望去,接着对朋友说道:“看下面那些人,他们看起来就象蚂蚁一样小,是不是?”

  "It’s ants," his friend answered," We're on the ground."

  “那些就是蚂蚁,”他的朋友答道,“我们还在地面上。"
