Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday and if you’re studying this on New Year’s Eve, enjoy the celebrations and see you in 2015!!

A 737, with 115 passengers and 6 crew, made a normal landing on runway 22L at its destination airport. However, when the crew tried to turn the nose wheel to vacate the runway it didn’t respond and they were unable to turn the plane. The aircraft stopped on the runway and had to stay there for 20 minutes until a tug arrived and towed the plane to the apron.
