Cargo shift

Fly High English logo.

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A 737 which was performing a freight flight with 3 crew members, was departing from its airport of origin when there was a shift in the position of its cargo. The crew was able to maintain general control of the aircraft but had some difficulty maintaining level flight. They decided to return to their airport of origin and made a safe landing 25 minutes after taking off. Maintenance reported that there was damage done to the bulk head when the load shifted during takeoff.
